Developing Careers through Social Networks and Transversal Competencies (EU Horizon 2020, 2016-19)

The aim of the project is to develop a personalised learning environment for career development.The environment will provide assessment of transversal competencies and social capital to highlight opportunities for career development and to inform and guide learners towards realistic and attainable careers.  The contributions of UWE are to apply information extraction, data mining and social network analysis techniques to assess the learner’s social capital using evidence gathered from diverse sources in a workplace.

Smarticipate (EU Horizon 2020, 2017-20)

The project aims to make effective use of open government data for planning applications. The project will develop a platform that enables citizens to start planning proposals in 2D/3D, get system generated feedback on the suitability of the proposal (i.e. environmental and economic feasibility), collaborate with other citizens and seek suggestions for improvement.
