"I am delighted to welcome Hero Vired to the MIT J-WEL community," commented J-WEL Principal Research Scientist Dr. George Westerman. "We share a common goal to transform workforce learning, and I envision having many opportunities to cooperate in doing so."
Hero Vired is a startup venture of the Hero Group that offers career-relevant programs, in collaboration with world-class universities, to make learners more competent and industry-ready for emerging jobs and professions under Industry 4.1. With best-in-class short and long-term learning programs, Hero Vired offers overall professional development via skill-based programs and courses that are imperative to a learner's growth in India's rapidly evolving digital economy.
"J-WEL provides innovative solutions for developing curricula, designing new education and training programs, conducting learning research, and reimagining existing educational institutes and policies. We believe it is equally important to train and upskill faculty, and this partnership will be a step in that direction. This means Hero Vired's faculty are in a better position to help our learners achieve their goals," remarked Akshay Munjal, Founder & CEO, Hero Vired.
Hero Vired will join other members for upcoming workshops and events over the course of the next year, virtual and in-person gatherings that bring together representatives of member organizations with MIT faculty and researchers from across MIT. Hero Vired will exchange ideas and best practices in energy, social innovations, and community intervention with global affiliates of J-WEL, working toward collaborative solutions in education challenges.
