The very first Digital Skills Fair will gather all the people & projects across Belgium working on digital skills development.

You have a passion for digital skills? Come and meet your peers & help us build a strongly tied network of professionals and volunteers.

Through short presentations and speed dating, participants can get to know each other (a little better), exchange ideas and explore possibilities for collaboration.

Who's there to meet?

  1. representatives from dozens of digital skills projects across Belgium
  2. people developing digital skills initiatives that wish to explore collaborations & discuss their ideas with pears
  3. anyone interested to contribute to digital skills development, looking to explore the current possibilities

You will be able to review the profiles of all projects involved through the matchmaking tool and they will also be published on the website as a guideline for further discovery.

Feel free to also invite your partners, sponsors and project friends to come and meet the Digital Skills community!
