About us

eLene4Life supports curriculum innovation in higher education (HE) through the development of active learning approaches for transversal skills, with the ultimate aim of improving students’ employability.

According to the 2018 World Economic Forum Report ‘Towards a Reskilling Revolution: A Future of Jobs for All’, the rise of artificial intelligence, robotics and other digital developments is upending the primacy of human expertise in the economy. The individuals who will succeed in the economy of the future will be those who can complement the work done by mechanical or algorithmic technologies, and ‘work with the machines’. The 2018 European Commission Proposal on Key Competences also draws attention to these disruptions affecting European societies and economies, stating that “Skills such as creativity, critical thinking, taking initiative and problem solving play an important role in coping with complexity and change in today’s society.”
