Vocational competence as a special purpose

Oppiva Invest is a state-owned special-assigment company. We provide complementary financing to companies whose solutions contribute to the development of vocational competence and learning environments. The goal is for the solutions to renew vocational education and training, support learners and teachers, address the competence needs of working life, and introduce new tools for the leadership and development of educational institutions today.


As a state-owned special-purpose company, we are passionate about vocational competence and learning, as well as innovative technology and digital solutions that promote learning.

We challenge companies and educational institutions to open collaboration! For example, partnerships in product development and testing between companies and educational institutions lead to solutions that genuinely address real needs.

We need to get to know each other, to have genuine collaboration, shared reflections, a common direction, and the ability and willingness to understand the needs and goals of both parties.

Oppiva Invest is launching testbed operations intending to foster co-development and provide opportunities for educational institutions to explore innovations in the field of education.


Developing competence and the associated learning environments and technological solutions are a complex phenomenon, both together and separately.

There are a vast number of different actors involved in the endeavour. We invite you to join the collective discussion!
