Huawei ICT Academy Advisory Board Leads the Way in Securing the ICT Talent Ecosystem for the Future

Jaa

There is a crisis emerging in the ICT industry, as the sector struggles to fill vital roles. Talent supply is the top problem facing digital tech businesses in the UK, according to Technation. As technology evolves, experienced staff retire, and more jobs become available, this problem is set to get worse. In fact, there are predicted to be 1.7 million new ICT jobs for tech specialists between 2015 and 2025, and candidates need the skills and experience to fill them.

To help solve this problem, Huawei ICT Academy provides a not-for-profit education initiative that facilitates partnerships between universities and business, supporting young Europeans with great potential in digital, such as students, developers and entrepreneurs. The Huawei ICT Academy Advisory Board was established in November 2017 to lead the Huawei ICT Academy in Western Europe and runs independently, supported by investment from Huawei. It is Huawei’s only association of this type outside China. The Board leads the overall direction and development of the Huawei ICT Academy and supports the industry in furthering practitioner knowledge.

The Huawei ICT Academy Advisory Board is made up of renowned academics, members of professional bodies and leaders from Huawei. It ensures that the Huawei ICT Academy provides a platform for academic excellence and challenges students and developers with competitions and certifications, helping its audience of New Young Europeans to have successful ICT roles in the future.

Professor Zhili Sun, Vice-Chair Academia of the Huawei ICT Academy Advisory Board, and professor of Communication Networking at the University of Surrey, said: “We set up a committee to serve the group of young talented people involved in skills within the UK and Europe.”

The board is led by Professor Edmund Burke, Chair – Academia and Vice Principal for Science and Engineering at Queen Mary University, London. His Co-Chair is Mr. Bradd Feng, Director of Global Training and Certification Dept. at Huawei. Together they lead the 20 board members who oversee the Huawei ICT Academy’s programs, processes, delivery and organization and lead on the strategic development of the Huawei ICT Academy Program in the UK.

For example, Huawei and Huawei ICT Academy organise the Huawei ICT Skill Competition to develop ICT professionals, connecting with the makers and doers of the digital future. The global final of the competition takes place in China in May, with six students from Western Europe competing. They will learn relevant skills and gain experience that will power the entire industry and, ultimately, drive digital transformation. Huawei also works with governments, offers globally recognised certifications, graduate programs and joint R&D projects to help build an open, sustainable ICT ecosystem.

By bringing together leaders from academia and industry, the Advisory Board’s leadership will further the development of the ICT Industry by providing advice on issues of strategic importance, such as the syllabus, virtual learning resources, program delivery and processes. Technology advances come rapidly in the ICT sector, so by overseeing the direction of the ICT Academy Programme, the Advisory Board ensures that students are developing vital knowledge to become a new type of multi-skilled engineer – critical to the ICT industry as well as to global development and growth.

This will continue to have a positive impact when students enter the workplace. Pearson VUE’s 2017 Value of Certification Survey found that 54% of people experienced their first benefit within three months of gaining a certification, such as a salary increase or promotion. Additionally, 93% of hiring managers recognise industry certifications.

Biosimilars could facilitate early access to life changing biological treatments for patients says Celltrion Healthcare21.5.2018 14:27Tiedote

At the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 23rd Annual International Meeting in Baltimore, Celltrion Healthcare today advocated for healthcare systems to introduce biologics earlier in a patient’s treatment regimen in order to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies show that the early introduction of biologics can bring greater clinical benefit to patients.1,2,3,4,5,6 However, only a limited number of patients have access to biological treatment due to the high-cost of biologics and current reimbursement policies determined by pharmacoeconomic evaluations. Since the introduction of biosimilars, the overall cost of biological treatments has reduced in Europe, allowing an increased number of patients to access this important treatment option earlier in their course of treatment.7 Professor Jørgen Jahnsen said, “For the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, biological treatments are proven to be the most efficacious medical therapy and their ea
