The Digitalization Initiative
The Digitalization Initiative (in Swedish, Digitaliseringsuppdraget) studies what incentives and needs Malmö University’s staff have in relation to working digitally, both regarding digital tools and processes. The aim is to create a strategy for how digitalization can improve the quality of education, research, collaboration and internationalization, in accordance with Malmö University’s Strategy 2022. The initiative is headed by Andreas Jacobsson, Dean of Malmö University's Faculty of Technology of Society.
