We are focusing on four main areas of work, each of which plays a fundamental role in higher education and its transformation. These are digitalization, entrepreneurship, social impact and WELLBEING.



Calendar  Oct 7 - 6:00pm CEST (Madrid Time)

These days, learning is something that can take place at any place and time. Learning is,in our era, something we do throughout our lives: either to renovate or update our professional knowledge or redirect our lives. Digital technologies support this possibility, that of ubiquitous, timeless, collaborative learning, linked to community or personal goals.

Therefore, we need, to ensure an improvement in technology to make sure that the learning experience is enriching and varied. We need also to empower higher education institutions and their users to design and develop their own environments which guarantee uniqueness and quality of experience, adaptation to personal needs, data protection and a sense of learning community.
