Savonia University of Applied Sciences (Savonia UAS) is one of Finland's biggest and most versatile universities of applied sciences. VIRED PROJECT: One of our ongoing projects is Virtual Reality in Education (VIRED) project, which aims to develop virtual learning environments in education. The objective of this preparatory project is to develop smart education solutions in transnational cooperation by utilizing latest technology such as virtual technology. At the moment, the key challenges are the digitalization of education as well as the structural changes in working life and society both regionally and internationally. In VIRED project, developing an education environment with virtual solutions will bring significant added value to solving these problems. Such a virtual education environment will not only improve education but also learning process in number of sectors. The virtual development of education creates the basis for promoting employment, supporting labour mobility, supporting recruitment and independent learning as well as on-the-job and lifelong learning. CONSORTIUM: Based on this, the VIRED project will strengthen cooperation between European institutions, universities and working life both at regional and international level. Therefore we are looking for transnational education cooperation. The primary aim is to create an international project consortium.
