Help build the digital platform that will support an ecosystem of lifelong learning.
Lifelong digital learning platform
With SYNTRA Vlaanderen
In this era of rapid change, lifelong learning is more important than ever. Unfortunately, most Belgians are not lifelong learners. Only about 6,9% of adults are estimated to be involved in some form of annual training. The benefits of lifelong learning are undeniable therefore it is crucial that better infrastructure is needed to encourage more people to keep learning. How can we develop a learning system which will encourage people to learn at any time, at any place and with the method they prefer? A platform, which can identify what a learner needs and thereby proactively deliver courses or training sessions, and this while citizens are working and living before they are faced with a setback in their career (e.g. restructuring). If this learning system is a digital platform, what should this platform do and look like? What kind of services for learners and companies should be provided? How could it be built using data input from 3rd party services e.g. educational providers, companies, start-ups and Government?
Partner with SYNTRA Vlaanderen

Millions of children around the world still can’t go to school or have access to deplorably bad education, which is penalising them for life. Even in Europe, we are leaving many behind, with educational inequality remaining high. So join us in building more equitable education that prepares us all for a more knowledge-intensive economy.
