In Serbia, as well as in France, where the industry which is worth 5 billion euros a year is also growing very fast, there is a common challenge: how to find talent, including female talent? In the context of the month-long Digital November event organized by the French Institute in Serbia, experts from the gaming industry from Serbia and France will analyze this challenge, explore ways to attract talented engineers and developers, talk about how to increase the attractiveness of the sector for students, and share some of the best practices.
A round table entitled Job opportunities in the gaming industry in Serbia will be held on Thursday, November 5 at 10 AM in the conference hall of the Mama Shelter Hotel. The program is intended for students and young professionals who are interested in pursuing their career paths within the gaming industry, as well as representatives of colleges, schools and other organizations that may consider the topic relevant.
Among the participants are representatives of French and local companies, hubs and organizations active in this growing sector. Above all, Emmanuel Delamarre from Plaine Images, who has twenty years of experience in the field of innovation development in the context of private academic institutions.
