Education and Digital Inclusion
Acer believes that education is the most valuable investment in the future. Education empowers people to move forward, while technology provides the best help to explore the limits. By putting our core competencies to their fullest use, we hope to achieve the following goals:
Boosting Digital Inclusion and Addressing the Lack of Educational Resources
Technology can bring improvements to quality of life and open up a number of possibilities. Empower everyone enjoy the convenience and opportunities technology brings is one of Acer's goals, and through cooperations between our global locations and non-profit organizations, we are able to extend the reach of technology to different groups. In recent years, we have also encouraged our staff to get involved in activities and transform the results of them into products, school supplies, and funds that can help improve education quality in rural and remote areas. In 2022, Acer Group’s social projects around the world made use of Acer’s core competencies and products to support disadvantaged or needy communities.
