Zone Human capital

The Strengthening digital human capital zone aims to develop digital skills in higher education with a focus on digital transformation, so that students are trained to become wanted professionals and professionals can continue to develop themselves.

Digitalisation is changing society at a rapid pace. As a result, the expectations and requirements of employers and society are also changing. The digital skills of our graduates can be improved. This concerns basic IT knowledge, information literacy, and computational skills, with precise content varying depending on the study programme. As a zone, we ask the job market and education the question: what is needed to train students and professionals to become digitally proficient professionals? The aim is for them to be equipped for new professions and to be able to contribute to solving various social and economic issues in which digitisation plays a role.
