Funding Opportunity to Up- and Re-skill People at Risk of Exclusion


European CommissionThe European Commission has published a call for proposals on Open Knowledge Technologies: Mapping and validating knowledge. This is a preparatory action in the field of online learning and skills. The aim is to provide a European-wide learning and assessment technology system, with an emphasis on skills that would increase chances of employment. The call focuses particularly on providing a way to up- and re-skill people with little or no resources, especially migrants. The proposal should encompass the following services: 1) map skills and competences as well as routes for recognition of prior education; 2) provide specific learning roadmaps through educational services and 3) provide recognition mechanisms for new learning (certificates, badges etc.). The proposed solution is expected to contribute to the implementation of the New Skills Agenda for Europe and improve the employability of people at risk of exclusion. The deadline for submission is 30 March 2017.
