The EMC-LM project is a successful outcome of the European MOOC Consortium, combining the world of education and training (universities, platforms) and the world of work (Public Employment Services, companies, sectoral organisations).

Project summary

MOOCs and digital continuous education offer a flexible, scalable solution for a European response to economic needs, keeping workforce skills current and preparing for future careers.

The European MOOC Consortium (EMC) aims to better connect with the labor market by collaborating with Public Employment Services (PES), companies, and sectoral organizations. This partnership spans the worlds of work and education, demonstrating the collective role of MOOC platforms, universities, PES, and companies in the labor market. They collaborate on MOOC development and delivery, enhancing continuous education and training (CE, CT).

Additionally, EMC-LM will influence regional, national, and European policies for education, employment, and growth through proposed change strategies and action plans, aligning with the Modernisation Agenda and Digital Education Plan.
