European project on leadership for the digital transformation of universities
The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), the institutional member of EUNIS, will be running two leadership schools within the Transforming Universities for the Digital Age (D-Transform) project. The aim of the project is to introduce a leadership training programme for the presidents and vice presidents of European universities that takes into account the role of digital technologies and open educational resources (OER) to transform their institutions. The Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) is taking part in this project, which is intended to help university governing bodies define their digital strategies and coordinate them with the public policies defined at national and European level. Funded by the strategic partnerships sub-programme of the Erasmus+ European financing programme, it has a budget of around half a million euros and will continue until 2017.
The participating institutions are: Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, UOC, Université de Lorraine, Sero Consulting Ltd, METID – Politecnico di Milano, Budapest University of Technology and Economics and EDEN.
