Collaborating to Drive Change

We work with groups inside and outside MIT to design and deploy interventions that measurably impact the incumbent and future workforce.

UN FutureSkills Challenge

As the pace of automation increases and the dynamics of global markets become more unpredictable, identifying the skills that will be in demand across geographies is an increasingly daunting and important issue. 

The United Nations Office of Information and Communication Technology and J-WEL are teaming up to identify promising solutions to this important problem through the UN FutureSkills Challenge. This multi-stakeholder challenge calls upon participants worldwide to contribute to the design of publicly available predictive models and datasets that can be used for forecasting skills trends at the country level. Submissions are now closed. Learn more.
