Digital Society, a future lab on digitalization by Thomas More University of Applied Sciences

Two projects recently started at Thomas More University of Applied Sciences where students, researchers and teachers jointly and in co-creation look for future scenarios based on the green and digital transition agenda: ‘Digital Society’ and ‘Circular business models in fashion’.
It is by engaging the future workforce itself – students – in the exploration of future green and digital scenarios for work, living & learning that we as UAS can positively and accurately contribute to this transition.
This first blog article by Thomas More UAS pays attention to the WHY and the GOALS of the Digital Society project. A later blog will report on the outputs of the project ‘Circular business models in fashion’.

EntreComp Framework for Green and Digital Transition

Lack of soft and digital skills is one of the core issues in education as well as SME sectors. Current context (climate change, Covid19, energy crisis) put them up front and there is a significant need to fill in the emerging gaps. Upskilling using EntreComp framework in this field proves to be a very promising approach. EntreComp4Transition project partnership is already working on assessing the mismatches in education and labor market to move on towards creation of sustainable synergies in these sectors.
