The project aims to strengthen the capacity of European higher education institutions (HEIs) in delivering courses and services that enhance and recognise green skills and expand green culture. In particular, the project focuses on supporting HE curricula development to advance HE students’ green skills and attitudes through a technological tool that will foster the recognition of green skills in the HE sector.
CERISE aspires to raise awareness of the green transition and promote the importance of green and digital capabilities for HEIs by expanding green skills and culture among students, learners, job seekers, employees, and educational institutions. CERISE’s innovative potential is reflected in the connection of its online system with the pan-European ESCO green skills taxonomy that contributes to the standardisation and interoperability of these types of technical tools at EU level.
