CROSS-FertilizatIon between formal and informal Learning through Digital technologies

The pro*doc programme is aimed to the education of highly qualified junior researchers in the social sciences, and is an excellence program in Switzerland.

CROSS-FIELD addresses the subject of informal learning, and how digital technologies can help to promote it, as well as to better integrate and orchestrate it with formal learning in different learning contexts.

To this purpose, CROSS-FIELD federates three Swiss universities in order to establish an outstanding multidisciplinary research team at national level, with expected international visibility and impact: the Università della Svizzera italiana, the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and the Universität St.Gallen.

The CROSS-FIELD doctoral school is funded by the pro*doc program of the Swiss National Science Foundation.
