THE Qatar Digital Government Training Programme at the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) is holding a series of virtual symposia on the latest technological research and applications to tackle challenges posed by coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
A total of 21 discussions being held from June 21 until July 8 as part of the series, target IT employees in government departments. Talks to be delivered by
experts and academics will be hosted in collaboration with national and global academic institutions such as Hamad bin Khalifa University, Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, HEC Paris and international corporations like Huawei.
The experts will discuss national research and key emerging technologies including data analytics and blockchain and how to use them to assist in the global response to the COVID-19 crisis. They will also discuss how the pandemic is impacting global supply chains.
The events come as part of the MoTC’s continuous support to the IT sector across government entities to help them better face the challenges presented by the pandemic and access the latest technologies, in addition to sharpening the technological, technical and leadership skills of ICT employees in such a way that contributes to achieving the objectives of the Qatar Digital Government.
One of the key events is ‘Managing & Leading Remote Team’ to be held on July 8, in collaboration with HEC Paris, to be attended by Dean of HEC Paris in Qatar Dr Pablo De Holan and Prof Patrick Delamaire. It will highlight the most effective remote team management tools from the standpoint of leaders and managers across organisations. The audience will be able to ask questions and share real life challenges and learn how to overcome them.
MoTC had earlier announced it would continue its QDGTP training workshops for IT employees of the government sector. All workshops are now virtual, observing social distancing rules.
As for the training
plan for Q3 & Q4 of 2020, QDGTP is set to deliver more than 39 training
