This IDC Perspective looks at initiatives and major deals in the education sector in Europe in H1 2019. It briefly describes the notable policies of national governments, as well as initiatives and programs currently being deployed. It further takes note of deals that have been concluded by the individual providers of education, particularly universities.
"The last half of the year has seen a further shift of focus among policymakers in the education sector toward digital infrastructure and AI. The providers of education should note this shift and assess their priorities and investment plans accordingly. Early adopters are likely to benefit disproportionately from available funding." — Research Manager Jan Alexa, IDC Insights, Europe
