ICS Hosts a Japan – EU Meeting on International IT Skills Frameworks


ICSThe Irish Computer Society (ICS) hosted a meeting between Japanese and Irish experts on competence frameworks on 10 October 2016. The Japanese delegation provided an insight into the i-Competence Dictionary (i-CD), the Japanese equivalent of the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF), which, in turn, was presented to the Japanese by the ICS and partners. It was noted that the i-CD and the e-CF share several similarities in structure, but differ significantly in the approach to skills evaluation. The participants of the meeting will meet again at the IT Professionalism Europe (ITPE) Round-Table Launch Event, hosted by CEPIS, in Amsterdam on 24 November 2016, where they will discuss possibilities of further cooperation.
