Representing the demand side of learning technology procurement, procurers monitor and steer the invested R&D (research and development) progress in a dialogue with the suppliers. Procurers have a demand perspective with financial and technical benefits on local and regional levels. LEA will bring learn-tech procurers together into a Europe-wide network.
Benefits for procurers in the LEA project
- Pedagogical, financial, and technical benefits.
- Solutions based on real needs taking end-users' feedback into account.
- PCP can change, influence, and improve learning technology.
- PCP places procurers (with their schools) in the "driver's seat of innovation".
- Increased competence and understanding of the learn tech market.
- Direct dialogue with the suppliers.
