Short Description:

The rapid development of technology creates new challenges for the education and training system: business requires specialists with specific competencies; students would like to receive a specialization for work in specific areas; universities are faced with the need to cooperate with each other to invite teachers to courses; the interaction between universities and real business still has a gap; there is a large group of senior professors who can no longer work at universities on a permanent basis; there are professional training centres that ensure the acquisition of professional competencies that are outside the traditional scope of universities.

All the above are happening against the background of increasing requirements for the mobility of receiving educational services without changing the location of participants, on the one hand, and the possibility of receiving them at any time, on the other hand.

The aim of the project is to create an ecosystem model with a demo portal that uses the principles of service-based, competence-based, student-centered education and business-academia partnerships for offering courses and various types of employment within one single European education and employment market. This project is focused on the development of a model of the specified ecosystem and a demo version of the portal, which implements the basic principles of its functionality. In order to implement the demo version of the portal during the project, it is planned to develop a framework architecture, including the main functional components:

  • Pedagogical components
  • Organizational components
  • Technological components
  • Competence components


As a result of the eMEDIATOR project, the following should be achieved:

  • Meeting individual educational needs of students, lecturers, and employees of businesses for the development of specific competences on the basis of education mobility services during the study in the university and long-life learning.
  • Offering opportunities for industry to find specialists for their unique competence-based demand on the entire European common education market.
  • Offering opportunities for individuals (students and lecturers) and corporate structures (higher education institutions and enterprises) to obtain and offer services on the continuous or sporadic full-time or part-time basis.
  • Providing academic institutions with an opportunity to recruit specialists with specific competences that they cannot find on the local market;
  • Creating an economic environment for implementing academic competences.
  • Implementing a competence-based model of higher education into a digital reality offering educational and employment opportunities.
