Bridging Risks to an Inclusive Digital and Green future by Enhancing workforce Skills for industry 5.0 (BRIDGES 5.0)


Project no.: 101069651

Project description:

Quantitatively map how jobs are transforming and what new green and digital jobs are emerging in the 4th Industrial Revolution; and qualitatively understand Industry 5.0 requirements (human- and socio-centric, sustainable and resilience) for these jobs and company practices;
Map Industry 5.0 skills and skill gaps at the EU-level and five European institutional contexts for emerging green and digital jobs; and enable monitoring of skill gaps using skills taxonomies/standards;
Set up learning trajectories and training pathways, using the enriched Teaching and Learning Factories concepts, and experiment with these interventions to reduce skill gaps for four target groups, i.e. managers, employees, job seekers and students, to prevent unemployment, improve company competitiveness and increase labour market inclusiveness;
Engage a range of industry and related stakeholders (policymakers, large companies, SMEs, social partners, Vocational Educational and Training (VET) providers) at regional, national and EU levels. These consortium members co-produce a collaborative (web) platform called Industry 5.0 Platform. This platform facilitates social innovation in the learning field. It also provides these stakeholders and four target groups with recommendations and instruments for new learning and training systems.
