DU - Digital University

A platform for the diversity – aware integration of data coming from multiple sources, within and across universities, worldwide. Towards the ever-evolving University Data Web.

Vision and Mission

The higher education system is large, worldwide and growing. This Digital University solution is motivated by the key observation that most universities aim for improving the quality of the university services. In the higher education sector, there is also great competition for funds and status, which is why universities are becoming progressively interested in data/information management and quality. Furthermore, as more and more universities around the globe aspire to become world-class universities, this issue is becoming paramount. These aims are enabled by knowledge management on the data available in the University information systems. This knowledge management could provide a deeper, holistic understanding of the University, in all its articulations.
