The objective of the EdTech zone is to provide (infrastructural) preconditions for collaborating with suppliers and startups, so that institutions can make better use of the innovative power of EdTech companies. The members of the acceleration team help and inspire each other to collaborate (even more) with suppliers and startups, and contribute to the (further) development of facilities that are also useful for other institutions to collaborate better with the EdTech sector.
The use of information technology is entering deeper into society
There is an app for everything and the possibilities that IT offers are great. This also applies to education. We do not know exactly what the impact of digitization will be on education, but we do know that it will be enormous.
Although institutions and programs are already fully engaged in educational innovation with ICT, there is every reason to accelerate developments and make even better use of technology.
EdTech @Fontys will develop 2020-2023:
100+ Dutch Ed-Tech startups in incubation.
10+ EdTech startups or innovations that are adopted successfully by different universities of applied science.
5+ Living labs for experiments
