The BRIDGE Innovation Activity aims at improving the prospects and quality of life of newly arrived migrants and refugees by developing a decision-making system based on AI technologies that helps public administrations manage their integration in the labour market through the collection, verification and processing of formal and non-formal skills.Tell Me More
BRIDGE will allow migrants to access job offers matching their skills set and public authorities to take actions to maximize migrants’ employment, fostering the inclusion process.
The BRIDGE Decision-Making System is enabled by three core modules:
By using applied machine learning and reasoning algorithms personal skills are matched with job profiles.
Skill profiles are recorded and maintained with personal digital wallets that source data from API enabled skill verification provided by multi-lingual experts.
Skills, personal preferences, and spatio-temporal restrictions processed by the matchmaking engine allow optimized placement recommendations.
BRIDGE starts in January 15/16 2019 in Trento, Italy, at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK).
Starting from February 2019, target groups are identified at two locations in Italy and Germany and interviews to collect the experiences and the needs of the relevant stakeholders (i.e the operators working with migrants for their integration in the labour market) are carried out.
Starting in March 2019, the system architecture is defined, developed, integrated and connected with legacy systems, and the front end is designed.
Starting from July until October, the system is being tested in Trento, Italy, and Berlin, Germany.
Starting from June 2019, the go-to-market plan based on the market analysis carried out in the previous months is defined and implemented.
