Digitization is going at a furious pace and if Sweden is to maintain its competitiveness, we must introduce new knowledge into people. During the years 2021-2025, the WISER project will do just that. Among other things, the project will create competence-enhancing initiatives in the technologies of the future, organizational development and leadership.
WISER is financed by the Knowledge Foundation's program Expert Competence. A program where universities and the business community together tailor flexible courses for already professionals. The program is based on the strong research environments at the universities, and creates a link between research, education and benefits for companies.
WISER at the University of Skövde
Skövde is an optimal place for WISER. Heavy industry meets academies whose cutting-edge expertise is in the areas of engineering and information technology. The unique constellation of parties does not exist anywhere else in Sweden. The employee gets a better starting point for their lifelong learning and the companies benefit from being able to maintain / increase their competitiveness and become more innovative.
WISER offers courses in, among other things, the smart industry of the future and its technologies, such as digital twins, AI and cyber security. The rapid pace of change we are now seeing also requires new ways of thinking regarding leadership and organizational development, which are also part of the initiative. It is known to many that Skaraborg is an industry-heavy region, but the courses within WISER are also suitable for industries such as finance, transport and trade.
