The advent of digitalization and artificial intelligence, the influx of new generations of workers to the labor market and the rapidly changing consumer and competitive environments will disrupt the way we learn and the way we work. A study by the World Economic Forum predicts that by 2022 more than 54% of all employees will require significant re- and upskilling. In addition, freelancing is likely to surge and people will change their jobs more often than any generation before. These developments require new solutions in recruiting, talent management and lifelong learning.

In this meetup, we explore how Blockchain can transform the educational sector as well as the recruiting of talents.

Prof. Dr. Jürgen Ernstberger
Our first speaker tonight is Jürgen Ernstberger, Chair of Financial Accounting and Dean of Academic Affairs at the Technical University of Munich. Jürgen has several research projects on the impact of blockchain and is advisor at the EdTech start-up Aptera. Aptera is headquartered in Munich and provides a credential wallet for storing a portfolio of certificates for skills, experiences or knowledge. Jürgen will present his view on how blockchain will transform education and recruiting.
