Information for piloting partners

With users for users – this is how MERLOT wants to improve the data sovereignty of existing applications and develop new smart services, such as the career orientation assistant. This collaborative approach ensures for learners that applications are maximally aligned with learning needs and are provided in a user-friendly way in an education marketplace. Moreover, with us, teachers have the opportunity to co-design various services based on data-secure AI-powered digital assistants. As a result, they benefit in the long term from a selection of certified services and new forms of learning for sustainable dynamic educational and skills development.

Participation as concept or piloting partner

Concept and pilot partners can contribute to European educational development through their active involvement. Schools and educational institutions critically evaluate a selection of existing concepts for smart services and check the requirements for priority and relevance. Partners gather relevant market feedback where appropriate and work with MERLOT to develop new ideas that will be incorporated into the pilot. The subsequent testing of the developments is carried out in an iterative and repetitive process of testing – feedback and documentation – adaptation.
