Referred to as a “learning laboratory”, the Campus is located within the Monaco Digital headquarters. During its opening on Thursday 28thFebruary, Minister of State Serge Telle insisted on the importance of this “new tool”, saying it was essential to Monaco’s digital strategy.

“We will not be able to move forward … without having agents who are themselves invested in the innovation necessary to meet the challenges of tomorrow. ”

The training hub is a “fun” space of 250m2, and was created out of a partnership between the Monaco Government and Monaco Digital. It brings together coaches, facilitators, experts in human resources and digital professionals from around the world; “people who share the common values ​​of being daring, open and sharing,” said the government in a statement.

The Campus is dedicated to the development and deepening of knowledge, and it houses training rooms, spaces for co-construction and innovation, coworking spaces, a digital showroom and a studio for creating educational content.

The site will be used to train state officials and administration staff by the end of the year. The aim, said the government, is to attract talents, keep them, develop them and allow everyone to flourish, especially through access to training and information for all.

“Monaco will not succeed in its digital transformation without integrating training with new digital tools, so the administration will become the most inclusive and the most horizontal in the world,” said Frédéric Genta, Interministerial Delegate for Digital Transition.

“The Campus will make it possible to work differently by promoting learning for all,” added Stephan Bruno, Director of Human Resources and Training in the Public Service. “The digital transition requires a profound transformation in terms of work organisation and managerial practices”.
