HECAT is a research consortium carefully brought together to achieve the mammoth task of developing an ethical algorithmic-based platform to assist Public Employment Services (PES) and Unemployed people in making informed transparent and integrated decisions.
The research aims to use sociologically and anthropological insight into unemployment and the labour market to guide technical developers of the back-end algorithms and front-end user interface with the objective of creating an ethical and equal platform. Consortium partners are drawn from AHSS and STEM disciplines, academics, NGOs and PES.
