The digital age is entering every area of our lives, including education at each level. Young people are more and more willing to look for knowledge on the Internet. Traditional lectures, paper textbooks and even e-learning materials are often not attractive to them. Generation Z, who is currently in high school and university education, is more likely to "talk" via instant messaging or chats, rather than having a conversation. The textual form of communication is also used to gain knowledge and develop skills. Young people prefer short texts, photos, games, stories and step-by-step instructions presented in a fun way. The MELES-BOT project is trying to meet this very strong trend.
The aim of the project is to develop an educational chatbot to conduct an entrepreneurship course. The innovative BOT-learning educational method is based on the use of tools such as chatbot (virtual teacher) and chat (text or conversation with a real educator). This means using channels commonly used by GEN-Z and filling them with proven and useful content. Given the fact that there are many unverified sources on the Internet, providing verified knowledge is crucial.
The results of the MELES-BOT project fit directly into the mainstream of transformation of the education system, i.e. education 4.0, which uses technology-based tools and resources to implement the education process in a non-traditional way. Its goal is, inter alia, providing basic skills and key competencies to pupils and students who will create the Industry 4.0 staff. The digital competencies acquired by teachers will help educate young people with digital skills.
MELES-BOT also gives equal opportunities in access to education. Thanks to remote access, all those who, for various reasons, cannot attend face-to-face classes will have equal educational opportunities. Remote access also plays an important role in crisis situations (e.g. in a pandemic) when direct classes are suspended.
The entrepreneurship course is just an example, but it is a very eloquent example as more and more students take part in such courses.
Our horizontal goal is not only to present this particular course but to convince the academic community to use the BOT-learning methodology to run other courses in the future.

Project Summary: Prospective cohort studies allow tackling major research questions regarding the health and well-being of individuals and communities. JOINUS4HEALTH aims to combine Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) and crowdsourcing as converging approaches to promote inclusive innovation and citizens engagement in cohort research. Objectives are: 1) ESTABLISH and REVIEW a conceptual framework; 2) DEVELOP, TEST and APPLY technology to engage various societal actors; 3) EXPLORE, IMPLEMENT and MONITOR institutional changes and incorporate RRI into the governance framework of three cohort institutions; 4) ADVANCE RRI and citizen science into the mainstream of public engagement, science communication and education; and 5) PROMOTE engagement and COMMUNICATE and DISSEMINATE outputs via traditional and innovative means. The concept is based on crowdsourcing, where cohort participants, the general public and other societal actors can propose research questions or contribute to addressing such questions via working groups. Researchers are encouraged to actively engage citizens and other societal actors in dialogues during the design of their analyses and interpretation of results. Specialists will enhance this synergy by online and offline activities based on the communication strategy to boost engagement and ensure sustainability. An interactive, web-based platform facilitates and social media promotes engagement, communication and dissemination. Targeted education activities are designed and implemented at the school, university and citizen level.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101006518.

Training and education have significantly changed from the past. Recently educational systems were conservative, difficult to dynamize, slow to accept innovations. Nowadays we are adamant that the educators are increasingly expanding the tools to successfully develop the potential of each individual during every stage of education. Evidence can be traced in different directions: we apply a much greater variety of educational formats than ever before in the history of education - hybrid education, dual education, combined methods, techniques and tools for building and upgrading knowledge, skills and competences. The availability of various technological solutions in education allows the development of a balanced mix of learning tools through which to impart knowledge, form skills and attitudes in young people for the future. Stimulating innovative training and developing new educational practices is also the focus of the ongoing MELES BOT project (2020-1- PL01-KA203-081777), in which the partners involved in current project proposal are participating.
We will analyze the needs of your project and your team. On this basis, an individual mentoring, training, consulting or coaching program will be prepared and implemented together.
