The Ix3-project aims at enhancing availability and quality of university-level education for SMEs going through digitalisation restructuring.

The project creates a pilot study program that focuses on intelligent solutions for internationalization, especially for SMEs. The study program is based on a model, where universities and companies do together, learn together and develop together. Three SMEs from the Ostrobothnia area participate in the development of the study program. The outcome of the project is a learning platform for intelligent industrial solutions for internationalization.

The project also renews the education of VAMK and UVA to better meet the present and the future needs of companies.

IX3 is a joint project between Design center Muova, Strategic Business Development -research group of the University of Vaasa and the Digital Economy research platform of the University of Vaasa.
