International research project DEVELOP for career planning and career development officially launched

The project aims to support employees in large and medium-sized enterprises across Europe with their career planning.

Today, careers are influenced strongly by changing labour markets with reduced job security, longer career paths, and growing demand for adaptable workers with nearly unlimited mobility. Additionally, employees who are actively developing their careers, usually lack sufficient career guidance and support.

To address these challenges and support employees in their career development, the DEVELOP project (Developing Careers through Social Networks and Transversal Competencies) has been launched. It receives funding from the European Union as part of the Horizon 2020 Program and has officially started on February 1st, 2016 with a lifetime of three years.

The main objective of the DEVELOP project is to create a personalised, digital learning environment for employees to support career development and talent management in medium-sized and large companies. This so-called “learning-environment” will focus on the assessment of transversal competencies in order to reveal transferrable skills that apply across jobs. Transversal competences are key skills that can be applied to various areas in the professional sense, but also in private life. Management skills, the ability to solve problems or creativity to name a few. Secondly, it will evaluate employees’ social skills, such as communication skills or personal values and highlight the need for mutual understanding and cooperation to access career development opportunities.

Furthermore, DEVELOP aims to pioneer the use of personalised learning tools, game-based assessment, social network analysis, and artificial intelligence (AI) within the learning environments to support career development. It will also provide guidance for the learners along their chosen career paths using existing learning resources.

To implement the project, seven partners from different European countries are collaborating closely: Trinity College Dublin (IRL), IBM Ireland Ltd (IRL), the Queen’s University Belfast (UK), Trilateral Research Limited (UK), Tracoin Quality BV (NL), GITP BV (NL), and IMC AG (GER). The extensive research and industrial experience of those partners is the basis to achieve the project goals.

The role of IMC AG within the DEVELOP project includes assistance in the development of the personalised learning environment, in particular the self-assessment tools. These are to be offered in the future as part of DEVELOP to other companies, to allow employees to reflect on their levels of knowledge and skills and thus to create a basis for further training. IMC AG will integrate the features developed into their own Learning Management System, IMC Learning Suite. In addition, IMC is responsible for the dissemination and exploitation of project results through various online channels, events and close cooperation with different stakeholders. Furthermore, IMC is responsible for the circulation and utilisation of the project results via online channels, events, and close cooperation with stakeholders.
