On 25-27 October Senior Researcher Justina Vaikutytė-Paškauskė represented PPMI at the International Open Recognition day – ePIC conference in Bologna, Italy. The event aimed to explore the contribution of technology to credentialing systems and provided a platform for key decision makers from education, human resources development, employment, public authorities and industry to discuss open recognition of competencies. Justina delivered a Key Note address based on the Study to support the revision of the Diploma Supplement and analyse the feasibility of its digitalisation at European level. The presentation focused on findings, discussion of potential digitalisation options and innovative recognition practices such as OpenBadges. The final report of study is available here.

The congress also marked the launch of MIRVA (Making Informal Recognition Visible and Actionable) – a 3-year project sponsored by the European Commission. Learn more about the event and topics covered here
