Priority in their work is the use of new technologies in the educational process, and meetings with business representatives aim to give added value to the educational process.
The main focus of the lecture of Prof. Dr. Natalia Futekova was that business is increasingly looking for people who understand and use innovative technologies to increase the efficiency and competitiveness of companies. As a representative of one of the fastest growing sectors, she didn`t missed to mention that, in the dynamic times we live in, contrary to expectations that digitalization will displace people, trends show otherwise.
