One of the principal objectives of the ID 4.0 project is raise our students digital  skills set not only in technological terms but also in relation to the increasingly important “soft skills” demanded by industry and businesses.

The World Economic Forum has identified the importance of the skills


To enable our students to acquire these skills the ID 4.0 project strives to foster a mutually beneficial and fruitful relationship with local and far afield industries and businesses.  To achieve this this page will list a series of relevant, internal and/or external events, such as hackathons, guest speakers, conferences, workshops, CPDs, and much more.

We encourage our students to consider attending these events  not only for learning purposes but equally to network and increase their prospects of  employability.


The Lincoln Award booklet also  has a listing of these events. The last two editions of this booklet is on the Students menu item

If you are an academic or a student and know of a suitable even then please drop us an email at or through the Get Involved page.

The world of ID 4.0 is a fast changing and exciting one. This page will be regulatory and frequently updated with news of events. So, please visit here on similar basis.
