Event Details

The government of India has taken on the task of developing skill centers and knowledge hubs that encompass entire knowledge ecosystems. This effort has been integral to ensuring the availability of skilled manpower in the aim to fulfill the objectives of the Make in India initiative. In the same vein, the government has launched the National Skill Mission in order to create a large pool of skilled workers with the help of the private sector.

Sweden offers top-of-the-line education facilities and specialized training. Sweden is also currently investing in attracting Indian students to pursue higher education in Sweden. The next step is to help these students find work with Swedish companies in India and abroad. During this session India Unlimited will bring these students and Swedish companies together and present the opportunities that Skill India provides for them.

Swedish companies in India are positioned to make a significant contribution to Skill India as most of these companies already provide technical training for their employees. Could this process be scaled up as a CSR initiative to strengthen the skills of young Indians? Can we even envision a Sweden-India Institute of Technology?

The session is moderated by Niclas Ihrén, CEO of Matters Group.
