The SotePeda 24/7 project (2018–2020) aims to improve the future digital and co-creation skills and competences of multidisciplinary developers of health and social care services. The project develops digital competences for health and social care, information communication and technology (ICT), and business professionals. It offers digital studies, pedagogical solutions, competence frameworks, ethical principles, and a new open-study environment. The purpose of this article is to describe the aims of SotePeda 24/7 and explain what kinds of digital solutions and pedagogical tools it will offer to meet health and social care sector reforms for educators, students, and working life representatives. Future health and social care requires multidisciplinary, boundary-crossing competence to utilise digitalisation as part of health and social care services.
