European Social Fund Project in the field of Digitalization
Information technology competences are rapidly becoming a necessity for all industries and professions. In order to increase the competitiveness of graduates in the labour market and their contribution in companies where they are employed, Turiba University in cooperation with the Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies (LBTU) (formerly Latvia University of Agricultural) and six other partners shall by the end of 2023 jointly implement a large-scale project to strengthen student digital competencies.
The aim of the project “Digitalization Initiatives for Improving the Quality of Studies in the field of Strategic Specialization of Higher Education Institutions” (No. 220.127.116.11/22/A/005) is to strengthen digital capacity and introduce digital initiatives in Latvian higher education institutions, integrating technological solutions into the content and process of study courses.
The project consortium involves six Latvian higher education institutions, where the aforementioned activities will be implemented, and two merchant organisations. The leading partner of the consortium is LBTU, which has united the seven other partners: Rezekne Academy of Technologies, Daugavpils University, University of Latvia, Ventspils University of Applied Sciences, Turiba University, SIA “WeAreDots” and SIA “Baltijas Datoru Akademija”. The LBTU agency Malnava College is also involved in several project activities.
The main tasks of the project are the strengthening of digital capacity in new and existing study courses, the development and integration of the digital skills assessment system in universities and the integration of the latest existing digital solutions in the e-study process. Within the framework of this project, Turiba University will participate in the development of several joint courses with partners, as well as create digital courses for the e-study environment. Courses such as “Digital Marketing”, “Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in Business Management” and “User Interface and Experience” will be developed and will be available to students from autumn 2023.
In order to develop e-studies and create comprehensive modern e-study courses, 10 e-study courses will be developed, for example “E-commerce”, “Project management”, “Quality management”, “Sustainable organization management”, “Innovation management” and others. As part of the project, equipment for video processing and editing and a disk array for data storage will be purchased.
The European Social Fund project “Digitalization Initiatives for Improving the Quality of Studies in the field of Strategic Specialization of Higher Education Institutions “(No. 18.104.22.168/22/A/005) has been allocated REACT-EU funding foreseen for mitigating the consequences of the pandemic crisis.
The total cost of the project: 2 052 269.47 EUR
Project implementation period: November 1, 2022 – December 31, 2023
