A number of activities have also taken place within the framework of the TEWI in 2019. We placed a special focus on cooperation projects with the Swiss Distance University of Applied Sciences (FFHS) in Brig. In applied research, the Digitisation of a Practice-Oriented Course (DPL) project gained some momentum during the year. We held a series of workshops and were able to develop the conceptual basis for the implementation of an innovative course.
We also relied on cooperation with the FFHS in the field of practical transfer and organised a theme evening on the digitalisation of business processes as part of the “iischi Wirtschaft” series. At the centre of every organisation are, of course, the employees whose activities are the basis of an organisation’s success. The TEWI is a small unit with only a few employees on whose shoulders the diverse activities and tasks rest. In 2019, there has been a major upheaval and virtually all the staff from the previous year, except myself, have left. With a new team, we have started to tackle the ongoing projects. In particular, I would like to mention the new Executive Director, Clemens Deinhofer, who has given TEWI new impetus since last April. In this context, I would also like to refer to the pleasant contacts with staff of the FFHS, especially in the context of our cooperations, namely Oliver Kamin, Sebastian Straus, Willi Bernhard, Anja Bouron and Vreni Öztürk. I am looking forward to the TEWI being able to provide some impetus for the Valais/Wallis region with its work in 2020 and to being able to pursue exciting projects in this regard. I look forward to that.
