QualiChain

Decentralised Qualifications' Verification and Management for Learner Empowerment, Education Reengineering and Public Sector Transformation

QualiChain targets the creation, piloting and evaluation of a decentralised platform for storing, sharing and verifying education and employment qualifications and focuses on the assessment of the potential of blockchain technology, algorithmic techniques and computational intelligence for disrupting the domain of public education, as well as its interfaces with private education, the labour market, public sector administrative procedures and the wider socio-economic developments. The project focuses more specifically on the assessment of the implications (technical, political, socio-economic, legal and cultural) as well as the impact - in terms of benefits and risks - of the prescribed solution's utilisation, whose disruptive potential lies both in the exploitation of the innovative features of the aforementioned individual technologies, as well as in their unique combination in a new territory for the provision of a set of baseline services (Awards/Qualifications Archiving; Awards/Qualifications Verification; Qualifications Portfolio Management) and a number of value-adding services (Career Counselling and Intelligent Profiling and Competency Management including Recruitment; Competencies Evaluation and Development; Consulting and Decision Support). The proposed solution will be piloted through four representative scenarios, including: (i) cross- university degree equivalence verification; (ii) smart curriculum design; (iii) staffing the public sector; (iv) providing HR consultancy and competency management services.
