Institutions of higher education across Europe are building a new relationship between them and the labour world, also to increase the employability of graduate students. This implies a commitment for universities to redesign their curricula through the analysis and re-­interpretation of the demands of enterprise. The most pressing demand seems to be the preparation of people regarding “soft skills” to be used in work contexts.

The aims are:
‐ to describe the state of the art concerning Soft Skills
‐ to possibly identify new methods and tools for Soft Skills determination and certification for education and employability purposes
‐ to possibly identify lines of development for the political and institutional decision
‐ makers and the researchers considering the enterprises needs.
