INTERGEO’s Campus Geoinnovation will also be the ideal place to make new contacts and fill specific positions,” says Christiane Salbach, Managing Director of host organisation DVW GmbH.
Over three days, the Campus will offer exciting formats with opportunities for dialogue and presentations. Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis pitches, results of hackathons, and the European student competition will form the basis for further discussions and the creation of new networks among young professionals, universities, public sector organisations and businesses.
The shortage of skilled staff is a real issue and major challenge for the geo industries. “Get Kids into Survey” enables school pupils to discover the wide range of jobs in the industry and is another way of awakening the interest of young people for this exciting work.
Employers from the public and private sectors will address topics relating to young talent and careers in open discussions. All sectors face tough competition in attracting young newcomers, and knowing how to use tempting offers as incentives, creating some tension and encouraging lively debate.
Universities will be showcasing their range of Bachelor and Master’s distance-learning courses, revealing the breadth and depth of courses on offer and the potential career paths. The fields of smart cities and BIM, for example, call for new and expanded qualifications.
The Campus GeoInnovation will also offers start-ups attending INTERGEO a further opportunity to showcase their ideas and business models. And for all those attending INTERGEO and seeking new solutions and creative approaches, the Campus is sure to be worth a close look.
Why not let INTERGEO 2019 inspire you?
