 e-Skills Match platform

You can help us shape the e-Skills Match platform that aims at mapping your ICT skills and providing tailored-made courses through MOOCs and OERs.

The platform has developed a self-assessment system (in the form of a multiple-question questionnaire) that measures the ICT skills of the user, according to the European e-CF and ESCO frameworks. With the completion of this process, the system identifies skills, explores matching jobs and suggests online courses to bridge existing gaps.

We invite you to test and evaluate the original e-Skills Match platform.

Reimagining Education for the Fight against Crime

Stockholm, Sweden- 15 March, 2017

eGovlab has joined forces with the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) in building the foundation that will curb corruption.

Moreover, eGovlab, WEF and the Accountability Lab recently co-led the Forum’s Building Foundations for Trust & Integrity project in Mexico, in a joint attempt to promote the use of education in building integrity from the bottom-up. The country’s substantial civic engagement in the battle to put an end to corruption has presented Mexico as the ideal case study and fitting regional model for reform.

Through PACI, these three organizations are now bringing together the very best engineers, anthropologists, design scientists, academics and programmers from around the world to develop new educational approaches and materials for building integrity based on these principles. Whether brainstorming about primary school civics courses in Mexico; developing creative accountability approaches; or using technology for transparency in Sweden, the Knowledge4Trust Initiative (soon to be launched) will provide practical support for those change-makers across the public, private and civic sectors, who are looking to build transparent and solid mechanisms to battle corruption.
