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, is designed to support the acquisition of e-skills by Swiss workers through co-financing under certain conditions. With this programme, we wish to contribute to upskilling the employees, particularly in SMEs, so that they can seize the opportunities of the special situation that we’re experiencing now.
Computational Thinking Initiative CTI
The Computational Thinking Initiative CTI, launched on the second Swiss Digital Day, aims to strengthen digital education and develop basic know-how in primary and secondary schools in all parts of the country. With the help of tangible projects and the synergies among them, the CTI community is working towards that goal.
As a public-private partnership, the initiative is jointly supported by various public educational institutions and industry.
Our «nextgeneration» initiative supports digital education offerings primarily for children and adolescents to start early to create curiosity and build fundamental skills. Our job is to connect these existing platforms and provide reach and publicity via our channels and network.
