Yves Punie

Yves Punie is a senior scientist at the European Commission Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC IPTS) leading its research and policy activities on “ICT for Learning and Skills”. The research area started in 2005 with the aim to provide evidence-based policy support to the European Commission on harnessing the potential of digital technologies to innovate education and training practices, improve access to lifelong learning and to deal with the rise of new (digital) skills and competences needed for employment, personal development and social inclusion. The research covers three interrelated research strands: Open Education and OER, Innovating Learning and Teaching and Key Competences and 21st century skills.

Before joining the IPTS in 2001, he was interim Assistant Professor at the Free University of Brussels (VUB). He holds a Ph.D. in Social Sciences.
