USI's Management invites its employees to participate in the Digital Switzerland activities to improve digital skills. The initiative will take place over the six weeks preceding the national Digital Day, from 29 September to 10 November 2021, with a rich line-up of online English, French and German training.

The goal of Digital Day is to accompany the Swiss population on its digital transformation. More than 100 partners from public and private sectors throughout the country have joined. One of the pillars of Digital Day 2021 is "Future Skills", reflecting the importance of lifelong learning and the ongoing upgrade of digital skills.

The courses schedule is available here and can be filtered by topic, language and date. Since the focus of USI is on improving skills, we recommend filtering the list as "Learning".
