The Hodgman Government’s commitment to Tasmania’s information and communication technology sector is further cemented through our support of the 2016 Budget TasICT Generations Project.

Held at the Women in Tech event in Launceston today, the government has invested $50,000 in the pilot project that aims to address skills shortages in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) and ICT skills in the state.

Investment in the STEM and ICT sector will build capacity, create employment opportunities for Tasmanians and encourage innovation in the state.

The Generations Project will deliver a series of guest lecture events which will be held around the state featuring ICT leaders speaking on their career pathways and the importance of study in STEM and ICT fields.

This first event included presentations from women ICT industry leaders and students from years 7-12 with presentations focusing on their STEM focused career and study pathways.

The Generations Project is a part of a calendar of events delivered around the state supported by the Hodgman Government to develop Tasmania’s ICT capability and also includes IT @ Work and IT’s Your Career.
