Donegal Digital partners met virtually to discuss the latest updates on Digital Skills, Digital Research and Digital Innovation Tools for the County.
The conversations commenced with the Digital Foundation of Digital Skills. Dr Margaret Quinn, Donegal Digital Project Manager, explained that the group's Open Data Training Portal will become a window for Digital Courses across multiple providers in the County. According to Margaret, the prototype of this "one stop shop" is ready and the pilot tests will commence in January 2022. "We hope to launch it in February next year", she added.
Furthermore, regarding an action to increase 'Digital Research Capacity' , Margaret emphasized the support received from Letterkenny Institute of Technology to develop a business case and to build political support based on optimal digital research areas. "The first draft of the 'LYIT Digital Research Capacity Business Case for increased investment' is drafted and it will be published in January as well", continued Margaret.
