The EIT Urban Mobility Competence Hub serve a wide variety of organizations with urban mobility transformation related education and training. The main two groups of learners are expected in the mobility industry and city staff working with urban mobility. However, needs can be expected to differ quite a lot between different areas and segments. The needs can be both regarding education areas or topics as well as how the education is made and what methodologies to apply. If better adjusting to specific needs the impact of education and training should be possible to increase.
State your view regarding the education and training need with the here focused segment, MNCs. Is there a significant and general need, not met today and that requires our attention? Why is this not met today?
We should here focus on trying to understand the nature of the need, so please try to avoid discussing concrete solutions, even if it is difficult. Potential solutions will be discussed in the next step of the process.
3 thoughts on “Urban mobility MNCs’ education and training needs”
Cut from a report launched by the bank UBS last week:
“In a digitalized era where humans work and compete with machines, learning will increasingly have to focus on flexibility, creativity and innovation, interpersonal skills, and mastery of technology.
• As knowledge gets outdated sooner and working lives grow longer, the university is no longer the final point of acquiring skills, as the need to learn will stretch into retirement.
• While we expect the overall education market to grow at a high-single-digit rate over the next decade, private education will expand even more rapidly as the public sector lags the rise in demand. The market for e-learning, for-profit postsecondary education, language learning, and test preparation should experience a highteens rate of growth.”
If correct, how will this drive change within the sector, and what issues and needs will this result in? Also interesting how an inflow of funding may further drive change, “efficiency” and focus?
MNCs usually have huge internal corporate academies. How can we make the difference? What does EIT UM have and they do not? (ecosystem, EU perspective, more comprehensive approach to the topic…). Also, their objective is to make profit, who are their customers? maybe learning solutions can be found by better understanding their business model and how we can help them to achieve their own financial results.
Based on the input, there seems not to be a point to distinguish between SMEs and MNCs. The call will therefore not focus on specific needs based on this categorization.
