This autumn’s conference, The Learning Economy, gathered around five hundred participants from all over the country at various levels in the business, public and educational sectors at Stockholmsmassan for an very inspiring and informative fun filled day full of active innovators.
Unionen, Sweden’s largest trade union on the private labour market and the largest white-collar trade union in the world thought it was a no brainer to serve as the head sponsor for this event.
“That’s easy, said Jason Mcnae from Unionen. “This is the Future of Education and it’s a great way to get politicians involved in what’s really taking place in the educational systems so that we can continue to get better results for our students and those teaching and providing services in higher education.”
A hand full of the companies, organizations and authorities that delivered products or services to promote and facilitate adult learning and skills development included Moblrn, LAVI Competence, Plotagon, Brainstud (Netherlands), Branch Track, and Conpetence.
This Summit which will return for its 4th year on October 18, 2018 is a great social environment to meet, enjoy lectures workshops and discussions on the future of educational innovations.
