A lack of know-how or experience is the biggest obstacle in many municipalities when it comes to using the opportunities of digitalisation. That is why the association “Myni Gmeind” is launching the basic course Digital Pioneer – a vocational training for representatives of municipalities. In five half-day modules, the course imparts basic knowledge about digitalisation, includes tips and tricks for the successful initiation and management of projects and offers opportunities to exchange experiences and to coach one’s own projects. The first courses will take place in spring 2022. Academia Group supports this initiative by taking over the administration and implementation of the courses.
