UK-Austria EdTech Exchange
Realising the Potential of Technology in Education.
The UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) are pleased to be partnering with EdTech Austria and Advantage Austria to explore the opportunities of educational technology (EdTech) in schools and beyond.
This Exchange is an online event and will provide unique access to:
- UK and Austrian government presentations on key strategies and guidelines
- Teachers and EdTech industry experts from the UK and Austria
- Exhibits from a selection of EdTech innovations from the UK and Austria
Technology is often associated with increased automation, although within the education sector it will never replace the role of our great teachers. However, technology can be an effective tool to help reduce workload, increase efficiencies, engage students and communities, and provide tools to support excellent teaching and raise student attainment.
The UK EdTech sector grew by 72% in 2020 (now valued at nearly £3.5bn) and is home to over 600 edtechs delivering solutions to schools. In Austria, the EdTech sector has also seen impressive growth in the last 12 months, with start-ups stepping in to support teachers, parents and students seeking new technologies.
The UK and Austria enjoy a long-standing bilateral relationship and by identifying parallels and collaborating across the public sector, we can jointly realise the significant potential that the fast-growing EdTech industry has to offer.
Participation is free of charge.
