DOT – Developing digital skills as part of work activities

Artikkelikuva: Project introduction


The COVID-19 pandemic introduced new challenges in regard to how work activities are organised, but also highlighted the potential of remote work activities. The resulting new operating model has also given rise to the need to provide clients and employees with a new kind of learning path for digital skills.

The objective of the project is to strengthen the digital skills of the clients and employees of rehabilitative work activities in Helsinki. To support this, the project will develop a secure and user-friendly digital learning platform and learning content for it.

Duration, partners, funding and total budget

  • Duration: 1 January 2022–31 August 2023
  • Partners: The City of Helsinki and Forum Virium Helsinki
Funding: ESF REACT-EU (ELY Centre for Häme). The project is being funded as part of the European Union’s COVID-19 recovery measures.
  • Budget: The total budget is EUR 400,000, of which Forum Virium Helsinki’s share is EUR 149,000.

The role of Forum Virium Helsinki

Forum Virium Helsinki will serve as a partner in the project and support the conceptualisation and digitalisation of the operating model, utilising co-creation workshops and methods.

Benefits for Helsinki

Digitally organised work activities are location independent. The number of clients can be increased and the service diversified, which contributes to the accessibility and availability of services.
