Green eDIH assumes an active role in European digital talent development initiatives

Misiunea Apollo 13, lansată în aprilie 1970, s-a transformat imediat într-o luptă pentru supraviețuire.  Rezervoarele de oxigen au explodat, urmând faimoasa misiune de salvare. Lumea întreagă își ținea respirația, în timp ce de la o distanță de 200.000 de mile se căutau soluții pentru problemele tehnice. Inginerii și astronauții au lucrat împreună pentru a-și da seama cum să manevreze și să navigheze o navă spațială grav avariată, să găsească modalități inovatoare de conservare a energiei, oxigenului și apei și, în cele din urmă, să descopere cum să repornească un modul de comandă care nu fusese proiectat pentru a fi oprit în spațiu.

The Green Digital Innovation HUB (Green eDIH)proudly announces its active involvement as a member of the Digital Working Group of the Harnessing Talent Platform (HTP). This commitment placesGreen eDIH at the forefront of initiatives that address the challenges associated with demographic change and a declining population in the European Union (EU).

Regions in Europe are experiencing varying degrees of the impact of demographic change. Among these, Romania is a focal point. We face the dual challenge of retaining our highly educated talent while fostering an environment conducive to the development of digital skills. In the midst of these transformations, a major risk looms – the digital talent development trap. In this context, access to educational resources, technological infrastructure and opportunities to improve skills becomes a critical factor in determining a region’s digital competitiveness.

Recognizing the urgency of addressing these challenges, in 2023, the European Year of Skills, the European Commission launched the Talent Boost Facility , which will support affected EU regions in training, retaining and attracting the skills and competences needed to overcome the impact of the accelerating decline in the working population. Within this mechanism, in which focused actions are proposed, the Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission (DG REGIO) launched  the Harnessing Talent Platform (HTP) ,  Green eDIH participating in the opening event and the first meeting of the working group Digital , during November 23-24, in Brussels.   

As part of pillar 7 of the Talent Stimulation Mechanism, HTP has created four working groups focusing on critical areas: digital, health, research and innovation and territorial development. The aim is to help regions overcome specific professional and territorial challenges, increase their competitiveness and attract a young, highly qualified workforce.

In the next 3 years, Green eDIH will participate in the activities of the DIGITAL working group, which will focus on challenges and potential solutions related to strengthening digital skills and capitalizing on talents in the field.

“I am honored to work alongside the group of 20 specialists selected from various organizations in the EU to identify opportunities and devise strategies to respond to demographic challenges and propel Romania as a hub for talent in the digital sphere,” said Ruxandra MIUTI, Innovation Manager.

Mr. Gabriel MUNTEANU, Green eDIH Governor, expressed his enthusiasm for this opportunity, stating: “Involvement in the Digital Working Group signifies our commitment to harness technology for sustainable talent development. We anticipate that in this way we will bring new perspectives in attracting, developing and retaining talent against the backdrop of demographic changes, important for Romania’s digital future”.
