More about the project

The project is a continuation of Competence needs and courses for professionals in IT and competitive production

The focus is on continuing to develop the marketing platform We will continue to work with development where integration with the SUSA hub is in focus, but also other development like design based on feedback from users. During the project, we will work to ensure that more universities connect to the platform and the marketing of the platform

towards users is strengthened. The third and final part is about the national anchoring of the platform and securing the long-term ownership, there are other national initiatives related to marketing platforms where this is one of the pieces of the puzzle, through an extension of the project we are in sync with these initiatives and a holistic approach can be taken nationally.

The second part of the project is about further developing one of the developed courses that has been much appreciated, improving the administrative process in the meeting with the student when several universities work together. We will also continue the collaboration by offering courses developed at a university together with others to increase accessibility to industry and interested individuals.

Courses developed and offered through the project:

  • Digitally-enabled Production (fall 2021)
  • AI for Managers (spring 2022)
