Chief Researchers on Education

Education systems will have to be revamped to be attuned to the evolving needs of contemporary and future societies.

Education systems today find themselves in a state of flux, with profound changes to societies and job markets on the horizon. Hence, the way education is perceived and understood will be challenged as education systems face comprehensive structural transformation. With technological advances among the most important drivers for this change, the educational paradigm in the digital economy will be re-imagined in new ways, to meet rapid societal and demographic changes as well as more automated and fluid job markets.

A digital transformation of education opens up completely new, more flexible ways of organising, delivering and pursuing education. Meanwhile, students’ expectations and demands are rising. Despite the fact that the pace of change in the education sector is generally slower than in other, more profit-driven sectors, the education landscape will likely change significantly over the next 10 to 20 years, with new actors likely to be an integral part of future education systems.

Fundamental shifts in skills requirements and modern career trajectories up the ante for individuals, businesses and educational institutions alike. The question is how to revamp education systems and models around lifelong learning, which will be an increasingly necessary and unavoidable requirement in the future of work and education.
