IFIP has launched a global survey to gather information about the current state of licensing of ICT professionals around the world.
The initiative came out of a September 2014 meeting of IFIP’s Presidents in Vienna where they agreed on the need to better understand the approaches taken in different countries in relation to ICT licensing and related legislation.
The survey is being organised by BCS President Liz Bacon and IITPSA President Adrian Schofield, who plan to use the information from the survey to develop a position paper and discussion agenda.
If there are any licensing-related activities happening in your country or in any other country of which you are aware, or even if there aren’t, please assist us by answering this short survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CPQL9ZT.
Your cooperation and support for this IFIP initiative are much appreciated.
Please direct any queries to Adrian Schofield (firstname.lastname@example.org).
