Building Bridges not Brexits


TU Dublin Computer Science recently hosted a two day sandpit to mark the halfway point of the Global Entrepreneurial Talent Management (GETM3) Horizon 2020 Project. GETM3 is an international, interdisciplinary research and innovation project funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 stream. The overarching aim of the research project is to improve employability and future global talent management to support economic development.

This truly global research project is seeking to identify and address the talent management issues of the future by working with, and in, three stakeholder groups: students and graduates (the future generations), employers (wealth-creators of the future), and higher education institutions (educators of the future). TU Dublin Computer Science is one of thirteen members of the GETM3 consortium which includes universities and industry bodies across Europe and Korea.

On Monday two of the consortium members, namely  the Irish Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (ISME) and TU Dublin,  co-hosted the Lean Six Sigma workshop. Led by Dr Alireza Shokri from GETM3 lead partner the University of Northumbria the workshop sought to introduce participant to the Lean Six Sigma concept, a method that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance of enterprises by systematically removing waste and reducing variation.

After the Workshop the various partners and stakeholders held informal discussion on how best manage and retain young talent going forward. The next GETM3 sandpit will be held in Chonnam National University, Gwangju in South Korea from 24th-26th April 2019.
