Digital Skills Contribution
ARES promotes the acquisition of digital skills by providing focused courses. In particular, during the last 2 years ARES developed "The Digital Workplace" Erasmus+ project, aiming at defining a training program for employers and employees to become ready for the digital shift of companies, i.e. to work in a dematerialized work environment where interactions can be remote without losing team spirit and productivity. In collaboration with partners as Telefonica and Dekra (Volkswagen), a MOOC-like course has been designed and tested, and 25 professionals all over the EU have been awarded with a special Open Badge. The courses are still active and awarded professionals keep on training people to let them go digital in their workplace.
