Introduction

From healthcare to the retail sector and from the world of education to the business community - whichever sector we work in, the way in which we collaborate and live is changing at a rapid pace.

Digitisation, automation and globalisation have shifted the value propositions of companies and organisations - not to mention the desires and drives of the higher educated. The Sustainable Talent Development research group studies the effect this has on education in the 21st century and on innovation education in a network society. With an open and education-oriented view and a single important goal: optimal development of every student and professional.

About the research group

How can we make the degree programmes future-proof, considering the fact that traditional professions are dying out? Lifelong learning and development is essential. On a practical level, the boundaries between studying at a higher education institution and learning from professionals are becoming more fluid. Just like all other boundaries, such as the ones between disciplines, countries and organisations. Learning is becoming less constrained and networks that transcend those boundaries are becoming essential. A good example of this is learning together, i.e. in connection with others. The Sustainable Talent Development research group studies new forms of learning and development and aims to identify the forms that benefit students and professionals most.
