Generation 3.0 has a new advisory board. The members are educational analysts and experts from the world of innovation

This year, we completed the first five years of one of the Pontis Foundation's key programmes. A new Advisory Board composed of renowned experts will guide us through the new challenges in the next phase of Generation 3.0. Together, we want to focus more on disseminating social innovations across Slovakia and creating a suitable environment for their implementation. We now have solutions to problems in education, but they need to be implemented systematically.

Generation 3.0 has had an Advisory Board from the very beginning. Since 2016, its former members had not only provided advice on the vision, strategy and direction of the programme, but they had also helped build relationships with other actors in education and assisted with fundraising activities.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to: Lucia Šicková (Pixel Federation), Dušan Mešek (Jessenius Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University in Martin), Jana Kontúrová (Primary School of Bošany), Alena Kanabová (Accenture), Andrea Cocherová, Vladimír Bužek (Slovak Academy of Sciences), Saskia Repčíková (ProSchola), Matej Šiškovič (MIM), Ivan Pavlov (MPC).

The new advisory board will help us face new challenges. We appreciate assistance in the form of advice, know-how sharing and strategic guidance provided by renowned experts and specialists. The original members of the board will be replaced by experts from the field of impact investment and analytical environment and business. Together, we want to move Generation 3.0 forward. We want to increase the impact of its activities and prepare and support tools for the emergence and growth of social innovations beyond education.
