The ICT sector will continue to evolve on a worldwide scale as its role is taking an increasingly central position for our economy, being a driving force for innovation within enterprises and our society in general. According to Eurostat, in 2018 ICT professionals constituted 3.9% of the total workforce across the EU’s 28 state members, indicating a growth of 39.1% from 2011 to 2018. 

Particularly in Greece, ICT specialists accounted for 1.8% and the demand for talent in the ICT industry exceeds the supply. An increasing number of new and skilled developers can act as a catalyst for attracting new investments in software development and other related industries and become the driving force for corporate Digital Transformation initiatives that aim at increasing competitiveness, effectiveness and agility. 

This virtual event aims at bringing together representatives from Technological, Consulting and Human Resources companies, to share their unique insight in the ICT industry and discuss the needs of the Greek Market in Tech Talent and how we can respond to them.  


  • What are the key fields of expertise that the market currently asks for?  

  • What are Greek businesses looking for in new ICT candidates and what are the pathways for hiring? 

  • How can employers create learning opportunities within their organizations for junior but also senior developers? 

The event is organized by SocialInnov as part of the launch of its new Educational Program Tech Academy
