Funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche Luxembourg in the framework of their partnership block grant programme IPBG, the University of Luxembourg has created the COLLABORATION 21 (C21) programme. It teams up researchers from the University with Cisco – the world leader in collaboration technologies and SCRIPT – Luxembourg’s national agency for innovation and digitalisation in schools. Together, they propose a highly interdisciplinary programme encompassing seven research challenges at the intersection of collaborative skills and technologies to support education and the workforce.
