JOIN US IN SHAPING THE FUTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION
We are looking for EdTech solutions that truly improve learning and teaching experience in Higher Education.
Luiss Guido Carli University and LVenture Group, a Venture Capital operator listed on the Italian Stock Exchange, launch a call dedicated to Teams with Ideas and Startups ready for PoCs, to keep leading the way in the technology-enabled transformation of learning methodologies and teaching processes.
Education should be an immersive experience, centered on people no matter if they are gathered in classrooms or connected from their homes. In 2020, technology-mediated interaction is a necessity, but the current tech-intensity in Higher Education is very low, with the student and teaching experience lagging behind the tech-intense environment we live in. That’s why we invest in these technologies.
EXAMPLES OF LEARNING-FOCUSED
TECHNOLOGIES WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
These are only a few applications we aim to develop in our Program. If you are shaping a different yet disruptive solution for EdTech, we look forward to hearing from you.
The spread of Covid-19 has tremendously accelerated the process of technology transformation in Education, but Luiss Guido Carli University had been redesigning its learning methodologies long before the emergency of the pandemic that kept students and teachers locked down. Being part of the largest Italian ecosystem of innovators and academic authorities, Luiss has always invested in innovation to amplify reach and richness in the student journey, to stay at the forefront in Higher Education in Social Sciences. EdTech – Education Technology – is a general trend showing no sign of slowdown. As a matter of fact, last year investments in EdTech worldwide increased by 40% compared to 2018.
