The EIT Digital Professional School brings digital innovations to the market and supports the digital transformation of companies and organizations by creating a learning ecosystem. Our initiative is powered by continuing education courses, specially designed to provide critical digital knowledge, insights and skills to European professionals and executives, leveraging the EIT Digital Action Lines and partners' research activities.
Our Mission is to raise the digital skills and competencies' level of Europe’s Professionals, especially on the key areas covered by the EIT Digital Action Lines. The EIT Digital Professional School offers a portfolio of cutting-edge blended learning courses designed to meet the professional development needs of experts and managers.
The Challenges addressed by EIT Digital: The digital transformation requires constant technology updates in various fields. Also, the convolution of different digital technologies requires integrated knowledge in application domains currently not delivered by generic programmes (e.g. systems knowledge for architects in urban development where telecommunications, citizen engagement, mobility and environmental sustainability come together). But today’s professionals have only limited flexibility in their schedules and continuing education often makes it only on the lower levels of the priority list. Intensive programmes that require a very significant time investment with limited flexibility do not match their needs. Instead, suitable education programmes will need to be wrapped around the existing commitments.
Together with its partners, EIT Digital has developed and operates blended education courses that optimally match the needs of busy professionals and their employers, combining online elements that can be followed asynchronously whenever a suitable amount of time becomes available with focused presence modules that offer opportunities for collecting hands-on experience. Both online as well as presence modules can incorporate peer education elements. EIT Digital provides relevant training courses independently certified, documenting successful course participation.
