Conclusion of the Digital Lab in Rome which is aimed at introducing young students to ICT technologies so that they keep the pace with digital transformation as the next change-makers of tomorrow.

Final event of the Digital lab in Rome by which high school students experienced software programming through robotics, automation and artificial intelligence (AI) thanks to Ericsson volunteering employees. The Digital Lab, which is part of the Ericsson Connect to Learn global education initiative, aims at introducing students aged 11 to 18 to ICT technologies so that they are ready for the jobs of the future. In 2019 a specific AI course has been developed in partnership with Unesco. After being launched in 2018, the Digital Lab in Rome is the evolution of a consolidated collaboration between V. Volterra High School and Ericsson in the framework of a program by the Italian Ministry of Education to bring students’ skills closer to the job market. In this context, Ericsson in the last 3 years involved more than 800 students in 5 different cities thanks to the effort of 100 of its own professionals as volunteers. The aim is to replicate the program to engage even more young students.
