The goal of the Future Skills initiative is to bring together academic researchers and stakeholders from different organizations (e.g., school boards, financial institutions, private sector, universities) to do empirical research on how education and professional development programs need to change in an era marked by disruptive technologies. Researchers and members of other organizations who are affiliated with the project are particularly interested in analyzing these questions from a human capital development perspective, focusing on the implications for education and training over the life course as well as supportive policies and programs.
