Webinar #onlinetogether - The digital transformation strategy of Babeș-Bolyai University
#onlinetogether #impreunaonline #covid19 #webinar
Societies, communities, people around the world are increasingly dependent on technology.
Technology has profoundly changed society and individuals: from the way we socialize, to the way we communicate, govern, buy, learn, work, teach, research.
In the future, technology will have an even greater impact on us, it will be an integral part of everything we do.
Obviously, the university environment is not immune to these changes and it is vital in this regard that each university has a vision and a strategy to adapt to the digital age of most of its activities and processes, both because it is much more efficient, as well as because all its stakeholders will be there, from students and employees to suppliers, public institutions and competitors.
Obviously, digitalization is a tool, not an end in itself, we do it so that the University can fulfill its mission more easily, to be more efficient, to save resources, to make everyone's work easier, faster, and more pleasant, to increase interaction, to use resources as rationally as possible.
