The objective of the workshop is to explore options for building competencies for green and digital innovation through higher education.
Finland provides an interesting national anchor for discussing relevant policy options. By 2030, the country seeks to achieve higher levels of educational attainment and to further democratise learning.
During the workshop, members of the EIPC network, international policy makers and practitioners will discuss two main approaches:
widening attainment: to increase the overall number of students and the throughput of degrees in the higher education system and thus achieve higher levels of educational attainment among the population. The underlying assumption of this strategy is that the advanced competencies necessary for leading green and digital innovation are nurtured through higher education.
democratisation of learning: higher education institutions seek to transcend their traditional boundaries and build knowledge and skills across the entire society. The idea behind this approach is that everyone will need new competencies to participate in and adapt to technological and green innovation.
The online workshop will take place on Thursday, 29 February - h. 13.45-15.15 CET.
Registrations are currently open and will run up until and including 29 February.
