HvA2030’s mission is to support the evolution of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) to a resilient future-proof metropolitan university of applied sciences.
As part of the project, this space was created with the aim to enable the HvA ecosystem, its partners and citizens to freely share knowledge and experiences, raise awareness on important topics, and join hands in order to achieve a preferable future for all of us.
ABOLITION OF GUILDS
FORMALIZATION OF HBO
These factors influenced and shaped our mindset, behavior, and actions throughout the HvA2030 journey.
OPEN KNOWLEDGE INSTITUTIONS
Embracing knowledge institutions where people share knowledge freely and make it available to the public for the further development of society.
FUTURE OF LEARNING
Knowledge institutions must quickly and effectively find new ways to facilitate qualitative learning and research, fulfill social tasks, and help shape future-proof life.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION 2.0
A knowledge institution's effort to disregard contrasts, accept and involve each individual’s perspectives, mindset and opinions in the learning space.
CITY AS A LEARNING PLAYGROUND
Fostering a strong symbiotic relationship between the university and the city of Amsterdam where learning experiences are intentionally designed with and for community members.
The shared fundamental beliefs of collectives.
Technology, sustainability, dynamic labor markets, economic shifts, global population changes, and the emergence of Gen-Z, to name a few, are all changing and will continue to change the trajectory of knowledge institutions.
