Education & Talent

Improving digital skills for all

A truly innovative economy is based on both a solid education that builds on the past and looks to the future as well as talent development. As digitalswitzerland’s mission is to make Switzerland a leading digital innovation hub – worldwide, our Education & Talent initiative promotes digitalisation in both those areas. From compulsory and tertiary education to apprenticeship and lifelong learning, we aim to encourage and promote digital skills and competencies throughout the country for all ages and interests.

#LifelongLearning Boost Programme

digitalswitzerland’s Boost programme, supported by the Hirschmann Foundation, the Gebert Rüf Foundation and UBS, is designed to promote the acquisition of digital skills by Swiss workers through co-financing under certain conditions. With this programme, we wish to contribute to upskilling employees, particularly in SMEs, so that they can seize the opportunities of the current situation.
