UGent Delta invests in education focusing on digital literacy, and digital leadership. We do not only educate students to become the best in their domains, but we also offer them a broad perspective on our digital future. We advise policymakers and education networks on digital innovation, we develop curricula for formal education (cf. WeGoSTEM, AI at school), we raise awareness on digitization in extracurricular organizations (cf. Dwengo, OPSORO), and we organise university courses in which multiperspectivism is a central focus (cf. The Knowledge Society and ICT).
UGent Delta invests in fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research on digital innovation.
UGent Delta stimulates public debate about innovation. What technologies are emerging? What are the possibilities? How can we deal with these technologies as a society? We actively gather policy makers, citizens, entrepreneurs and researchers to debate these issues. Make sure to consult our activities at De Krook, or discover several of our specific communication tools, such as Immuno-T (a motion comic on cancer treatments).
UGent Delta offers training for entrepreneurs, policy makers and civil society organizations. How does AI work? What can we already do with Virtual Reality today? How do we adjust new technologies to suit the needs of the users? How do we make sure that our digital solutions are safe, reliable, scalable, sustainable and viable? Do not hesitate to contact us for a training course tailored to your organization's needs.
UGent Delta aims for societal impact, through participatory research, science communication and service. Our experts are frequent guests on national radio and television, because they can outline the bigger picture.
