SkillMill: an innovative app for soft skills recognition during study abroad

SkillMill, supported by Erasmus+, is a unique app for soft skills awareness during study abroad. Designed by career counsellors, psychologists, mobility staff and game designers, it bridges the student experience, recognised skill frameworks and career-based storytelling. In this session, you can experience the app first-hand, learn about its design choices and theoretical frameworks, and discuss innovation in soft skills recognition with higher education professionals.
