Answering to the soaring level of digitalisation in society and the education sector, not at least due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE) and the European Federation of Education Employers (EFEE) aim to work towards an education environment that embraces digitalisation and is beneficial to students, teachers, trainers, school leaders and education personnel alike. This project allows for a joint reflection on the potentials of the digital era as a resource for the education sector beyond the pandemic. 


The project is co-financed by the European Commission.

Combining a dynamic hybrid format with the use of innovative digital technologies, the Conference is the occasion to unveil the outcomes of the project and the findings of the research report 'Challenges and opportunities for the education sector in the digital era’. Drawing lessons from the experience of emergency remote teaching during the COVID-19 crisis, participants have the opportunity to reflect on the needs of education personnel, school leaders and education employers to implement inclusive digital education and the opportunities deriving for European policies and the Recovery in the education sector.
