Getting on with digitisation and the Acceleration Plan for Educational Innovation with IT are the forerunners of Npuls. Npuls builds on the results of both programmes. What exactly did these programmes entail? let us explain.
Doorpakken op Digitalisering
Lecturers, staff members and administrators of mbo schools worked together for three years within the national programme Doorpakken op Digitalisering (2019-2022), lecturers, staff members and administrators worked together for three years on digitisation issues that contribute to even better mbo education. The partners of Doorpakken op Digitalisering were Kennisnet, SURF, MBO Raad, SBB, and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
With all the knowledge gained in the theme teams of Doorpakken op digitalisering and products developed, we can take the next steps for Vocational and Education Training schools, so that we continue to work on digitalisation to organise education in a future-oriented and flexible way. This is something Npuls can build on.

39 research universities and universities of applied sciences worked together from 2019 to 2022 on opportunities that digitisation offers for higher education in the Netherlands. The Acceleration Plan was a collaboration of the Universities of the Netherlands, Association of Universities of Applied Sciences, and SURF.
In the Acceleration Plan, members worked together in ten teams and working groups on tools, studies, toolkits, projects, and pilots. Some of these pilots continue in Npuls, including the Micocredentials pilot, the Student Mobility pilot, Startup in Residence and the edusources pilot.
With all the knowledge gained on educational innovation in higher education, we can move forward within Npuls to boost digital transformation in higher education.
