Investment in Learning

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

In June 2019, MITA has been granted the Erasmus+ funded project ‘Emerging Technologies: Professional Development Opportunities’, under key action 1 Learning Mobility of Individuals. The project will end in May 2020, and throughout the project, fourteen MITA employees across three different departments will benefit from this learning mobility.

The aim of the project is to enable MITA employees to broaden their knowledge on emerging technologies in their respective business area, and in so doing improve the delivery of services to Government entities and to citizens. This will be done with the help of mobility hands-on-training through job shadowing. Through training mobility, MITA staff will gain a broader understanding of how the emerging technologies are used in the different organisations and gain insight into their best practices.

SPONSORHIP FOR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

A number of awareness sessions on what is blockchain and what are the benefits of this technology have been organised for MITA employees and government officials. MITA employees, also had the opportunity to get a sponsorship to attend either a technical or non-technical course on Blockchain at the University of Malta.



To further increase the knowledge on Blockchain and DLTs, in August 2018, MITA in collaboration with the Centre for DLTs at the University of Malta, launched a scholarship scheme for those individuals interested to pursue their studies on Blockchain and DLTs at a Masters or Doctorate level. For this initiative an investment of €300,000 over 3 years was secured. 

Over the first and second call, eighteen applications were awarded.  The said applications pertain to blockchain in Law, blockchain in Business & Finance and blockchain in ICT.
