ENGAGEMENT WITH COMMUNITY
MITA not only serves the Public Administration, it engages with society to encourage take-up of ICTs in the wider economy. Furthermore, it acts as a national asset during events of strategic and national importance.
The Agency collaborates with various government, national and international organisations to implement programmes eliciting the take-up of digital technologies. Various initiatives target different audiences. Special focus is placed on the adoption of emerging technologies through its Emerging Technologies laboratory. There is also emphasis on increasing the take-up of government digital services and in providing ICT professionals and students with hands-on digital experience.
A strong ICT enabled economy implies a process of continual and disruptive change. Long term digital economic strength depends on Malta’s ICT skills base evolving.
MITA is committed to sustaining a mind-set of Digital Outreach, with a strong focus on the ICT skills that are fundamental in a resilient ecosystem.

The aim is to increase ICT usage by students, businesses and civil society. The Agency targets audiences through projects and initiatives in 4 main areas:
