ICT-INOV project achievements at a glance

ICT is a a high growth sector that is expected to drive economic growth in the near future. The sector’s development is fueled by high demand for digital services as a result of the rapid evolution of computer networks.

ICT education needs to evolve in a pace that follows technological innovation in order to meet societal and industry needs. Given the rapid growth of technology, which results in the fast obsolescence of services and products, the most important skill that educational institutions can build among young students is their innovation capacity as well as critical and analytical thinking that will help them stay at the edge of their field throughout their career.

ICT-INOV aims to enrich the potential of ICT higher education in Asia and Europe to harvest the innovation potential of students empowering them to bring ideas into action. ICT-INOV deploys gamified design thinking approaches for building a highly skilled ICT workforce with specialized knowledge that can support the high demand for digital services towards enriching quality of life. ICT-INOV develops a holistic learning intervention that builds physical and digital infrastructures, innovative digital content, and instructor capacity to deploy emerging digitally-enabled learning design.

The project is funded by the Capacity Building in Higher Education Erasmus+ program and is implemented in Greece, Malaysia, Vietnam, Pakistan, Nepal, Portugal, Italy, and Estonia.
