MicroHE project results

In November 2020, at the end of an unforgettable year of challenges and hardships, but also a year of remarkable demonstrations of resilience and people’s and organisations’ adaptation to extreme changes in the environment where we live and work, MicroHE has reached its contractual end. During the 36 months of the project’s implementation there has been a lot of progress and promising initiatives in the area of micro-credentialisation – in higher education and beyond. This includes the launch of the European Skills Agenda, with its first implemented action, the new Europass platform, that is the most impactful uptaker of the MicroHE meta-data standard (as it is noted here). Another action of the European Skills Agenda, the European approach to micro-credentials, that will help to open up learning opportunities to citizens and strengthen the role of higher education and vocational education and training institutions in lifelong learning, is another high-level initiative that partners from the MicroHE consortium, including KIC, helped shape by participating in expert consultations. We couldn’t be more proud of the influencing role the project played on European level.

Overall, while the MicroHE legacy lives on in other related projects that we continue working on, our official work has been completed. We would like to express our gratitude to all who have contributed to the project’s success and share the list of MicroHE deliverables to anyone who wishes to consult them.
