The DIGI-HYVE project is a joint educational project of the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences. The aim is to

  • develop, pilot and implement multidisciplinary and working life-based online education for professionals working among young people as well as students in the field.
  • create a network for professionals and students educated in promoting digital well-being of young people to increase multi-professional cooperation.
  • provide for professionals and students concrete solutions (eg. education, digital network, service map) to tackle the new competence requirements caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, digitalization and continuing learning needed in working life.
  • indirectly increase the well-being of young people, their participation in society and the improvement of their position in the labor market.

In addition, a digital network for professionals and students will be set up to increase multi-sectoral cooperation.

3. Project management, communication and evaluation of results

The last phase of the project is to lead the project, communicate and evaluate the results, promote the further utilization and dissemination of online education in order to develop digital well-being skills of professionals, survive the COVID-19 pandemic and promote the well-being among young people.
