Abstract
The Fourth Industrial Revolution has understandably strengthened the importance of digital skills as key competence area that should be enhanced during all grades of studies. Additionally, generic competences enabling successful participation in innovation processes are very much highlighted by employers worldwide. This sets challenges to the ways we educate next generations. We need changes in all main stages of education: planning, implementation and assessing learning outcomes. When targeting to increase students’ innovation capacity, is there something we could learn from recent European, especially Finnish, strategic definitions of policies and development novelties?
