Respo X

Automation and digitalization are transforming the world labour market, demanding urgent reskilling and upskilling of higher education students as future employees. Last year, EC published the European Skills Agenda, where one major pillar is dedicated to the development of skills for jobs through dynamic education and training programmes that consider the labour market demands and societal needs. This goal can be achieved also by developing innovative tools, which will empower students to build up their skills.

RESPO X project is intended to exchange good practices in the development of skills using the RESPO X online tool, which supports students in their decisions for the selection of the most optimal training based on their individual educational needs related to future jobs.

The project uses an innovative measuring system that will enable effective training to fill the skill gaps and applies different algorithms to find the tailor-made best-suited training course for each individual. In addition, the project will also focus on the improvement of STEM and environmental sustainability-related competences of students.

– PR1: RESPO X, an innovative open online decision support tool for assessing and validating a set of students’ skills for a smart green transition
– PR2: Guidelines with the instructions on how to use the RESPO X web application and supplementary promotional video
– PR3: A handbook on policy recommendations based on validation of the RESPO X application and the successful transdisciplinary training
– PR4: Report on the implementation of modular transdisciplinary training


The project activities will increase students’ personal and professional competencies and skills to become efficient professionals in future jobs. The RESPO app will also contribute to assessing training and lecturer performance to be prepared to engage in the fourth industrial revolution and enhance their communication and digital skills.
The project results will significantly contribute to increased employability, especially with adequate skilled personnel, which will suit the future working place and business needs. Upskilling and reskilling based on expert system application could make human labor increasingly complemented rather than replaced by new technology. Policy recommendations and guidelines will be prepared with a focus on persuading policymakers about the need to achieve change in the field of upskilling and reskilling students.

Our Role

Innovation Hive is actively contributing to the collection of the database of STEM and social skills and competencies to be embedded in the RESPO X application, while being involved in the testing, reviewing and improving the app.
We are leading the development of the RESPO X Handbook on Policy Recommendations based on the validation of the RESPO X app and the successful transdisciplinary training practices, containing interesting EU policies, instructions on how to use the RESPO X app, and insights from the different stages of the app testing.
Innovation Hive is co-leading the project’s dissemination activities, and is responsible to promote and maximize the project’s impact.
