Published on: 05/06/2020

The Interoperability Academy Team is pleased to share with you information and materials from the second Webinar that took place Thursday 28/05/20.

Attendance in the webinar was by invitation only to: digital skills initiatives from Europe, international organisations, experts in eLearning, interoperability, and representatives from academia. It was important that webinar attendees had some prior understanding and/or experience of eLearning platforms, fundamentals of eGovernance and Interoperability as we actively seek their input for the development of the eLearning platform.



The Webinar

The aim of the Webinar was twofold:'.'

  • highlight the importance of digital interdependence for the realisation of the Interoperability (IOP) Academy which was illustrated with the synergies between the EU Academy and the European Skills, Competences Qualifications and Occupations (ESCO) teams, and;
  • present the first course in the IOP Academy, the European Interoperability Framework (EIF) training module.

The webinar involved also interactive Q&A sessions which gave us the opportunity to gather feedback on the future courses in the IOP eLearning platform and on potential synergies between IOP Academy and public administrations.
