Shaping the future Data Space for Skills

Proposing conceptual approaches and use cases

DS4Skills will define relevant data sources for the skills data space by mapping and analysing existing platforms and projects for collecting, storing and sharing skills data across both the public and private sector. These data sources will be categorised to feed into the future skills data space.

Next, DS4Skills will develop a blueprint for the deployment of the skills data space in the future, with various conceptual approaches, options and specific use cases.

A human-centric approach

Engaging stakeholders in a collaborative community

DS4Skills engages with both public and private stakeholders and involves them in setting the foundation and approaches for the skills data space. This is to ensure the use cases and applications fit their needs regarding education, training and employment, especially in a context of personalising education, reskilling and upskilling as well as recruiting the right skilled profiles.

DS4Skills also engages with the Data Spaces Support Centre to promote and coordinate all relevant actions on sectorial data spaces.
