Why this project?

Many  of us – teachers, HR-managers and psychologists-  agree that skills like communication, team-working, self-management, problem solving and similar skills are highly needed in working life. However, they might be quite absent in university curricula. 
Our  CoSKi21 project seeks to establish a framework for core skills needed in business as well as find methods for self-improvement of these skills.
 
This work  is a step further  for work done  previously by ESCO and ATS2020.
 
With these outputs we hope to help other teachers, HR-managers, students and anybody interested in knowing more and improving ones core skills.
