The European Strategy for Data (19.2.2020) calls for a common EU skills data space. In order to improve the competitiveness of EU’s people, the strategy identifies a need for high-quality data for qualifications, learning opportunities, jobs and the skill sets of people. MyData thinking offers a human-centric approach to answer this need; it is both an alternative vision and guiding technical principles.
MyData Global, VAKE Accelerator and the Skills Alliance are uniting to build a human centric skills data space. The #skillsdata thematic group in MyData has a goal to unite the organisations around Europe to build a human centric skills data space. The group will accelerate learning of the participants and organize a consortium directed to European Commission’s funding calls related to the skills data spaces that are expected to open in 2021.”
The documents presented below summarise the learnings and the potential that has been identified from the MyData Accelerator for Work & Skills project, coordinated by The Finnish State Development Company Vake in 2019-2020.
The participants of the thematic group see a great opportunity for global leadership in building an ethical, functioning and profitable skills data ecosystem for the development of services related to work & skills. This European strategy already unites initiatives from Finland, Sweden, Holland, Germany and France.
