Digital competence

Digital transformation is leading to fundamental changes worldwide. While this includes opportunities and unforeseen possibilities, it simultaneously also presents great risks – especially for international cooperation.

Digitalisation can be a decisive development driver and can help us achieve international development goals more quickly, more efficiently, and more cost-effectively. At the same time, digitalisation encompasses new challenges – with respect to data protection, access to hardware and the Internet, and the required know-how.

Our course offers in the thematic area »Digital Competence« support you in becoming aware of the opportunities and challenges of digital transformation for your project. You will learn how to use information and communication technology safely and efficiently as well as how to apply it effectively in your work context.
