Lifelong Learning


Programs tackle glocal issues while helping members acquire new knowledge, skills, and competencies through work-integrated learning pathways (WILPs). They provide a robust knowledge ecosystem to tackle various challenges, including the digital divide, intergenerational gaps and gender-based berries to employment, postsecondary programming, leadership and LLL opportunities. By organizing programs into WILPs, the MPM can offer incremental milestones on the path to associate degree, certification, and licensing completion. GCRI’s federated approach to micro-credentials upgrades legacy models to be more responsive, resilient and productive. It also enables new teams and technology stacks to run as Digital Twins with multiple CCells, providing greater flexibility when working with local, regional and international partners. Our programs help QH stakeholders with a zero-trust lab environment to build new teams, train talents, integrate services, mitigate risks and scale world-class solutions.


Risk Management programs are committed to helping members navigate risks to tackle complex environmental, social, and governance issues. Programs use MPM architecture and provide integrated paths for stakeholder engagement in risk mitigation. MPM's modular design help QH stakeholders combine SCF, GRIx, and iVRS for career development and up-skilling. QH members can create credit pools and sponsor risk management projects with Quests, Bounties, and Builds.

Cohorts engage in MPM by joining competence cell(s) in digital twins. CCells includes all the skills and local ingredients needed for a successful digital-green transition. They emerge in a particular context and use QH pools to fork data, knowledge, and resources. CCell can be seen as a 'pop-up' research unit that looks for the available infrastructure to set up risk mitigation initiatives. CCells generate insights for SCF, iVRS and GRIx and function as 'liaisons' that facilitate relationships among QH stakeholders interested in particular issues.

Cohorts can start WILPs in a zero-trust environment and work with multiple CCells to develop new knowledge, skills, and competencies. GRIx provides data science and helps CCells leverage open-source technology for risk mitigation and resilience building. Through iVRS, cohorts learn standards and reporting mechanisms to broadcast ESG values at local, regional and global levels.

Citizen science programs support public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge and impact. Through citizen science, all people can participate in many stages of the scientific process, from policy and design to the development, integration, interoperation, and dissemination of results. 

Citizen Science Programs leverage MPM for participatory pipelines and advance diversity, inclusion, and equity in science and policy areas. MPM infuses STEM-based modules in WILPs and provides training resources to use GRIx and iVRS for science-based projects effectively and optimally. Citizen Science streams incorporate concepts that support responsible research, sustainable development, circular economy, better regulations, and the appropriate measures to mitigate risk and build resiliency. They will advance interdisciplinary, cross-border, cross-sector collaboration and encourage social innovation and new business models.

Cohorts engage in Citizen Science activities by joining competence cell(s) in digital twins. CCells includes all the skills and local ingredients needed for a successful scientific experiment. They emerge in a particular context and use QH pools to fork data, knowledge, and resources. CCell can be seen as a 'pop-up' research unit that looks for the available infrastructure to set up citizen science initiatives. CCells generate insights for SCF, iVRS and GRIx and function as 'liaisons' that facilitate relationships among QH stakeholders interested in particular issues.

Open Collaboration programs support innovation and production systems that rely on goal-oriented yet loosely coordinated participants who interact to create a product of economic value made available to contributors and non-contributors alike. Programs include open code, open access, open science and open education. Open Collaboration is a policy priority and the standard working method under MPM, as it improves the quality, efficiency and responsiveness of the GCRI's knowledge ecosystem. 

QH stakeholders can use MPM to design pathways and streamline Open Collaboration initiatives, allowing participation, engagement, and validation as early as possible in the research, design, and development process. Open Collaboration programs affect institutions and science practices by bringing about new ways of funding (QV/QF), evaluating (PoC) and rewarding (CRS). They are designed to increase the quality and impact of science and innovation by fostering reusability, reproducibility and interdisciplinarity. The goal is to make science more efficient through better sharing of resources, more reliable through better verification systems and more responsive to society's needs through skills development and micro-credentials.

We work with QH stakeholders to recognize CoA, CoQ, CoE, and CoI for Open Collaboration streams and accelerate public participation in research, policy, and development programs. In addition, we work with international partners under ECT to effectively link Open Collaboration streams to legal frameworks and help members manage innovation risks such as Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), licensing agreements, interoperability, and data reuse.

Reverse Mentorship programs pair members across generational divides, encouraging a bottom-up flow of information alongside the traditional top-down approach. The junior mentors can provide valuable insight into knowledge, skills and competencies that older leaders and community members need. Through program streams, QH stakeholders can join commerces, create public affairs campaigns and build DICE with credit pools, badges, and certificates for meaningful interactions between generations in the workplace, cities, and communities.

Reverse Mentorship programs allow senior leaders to open up, ask questions, and better understand how to best work with younger generations. Also, it provides opportunities for underrepresented employees to gain valuable face-to-face time with leaders. Not only does this help their careers, but it gives leaders critical new perspectives.

Reverse Mentorship programs aim to tackle the digital divide and build intergenerational awareness through effective WILPs that support transversal knowledge, skills and competencies. We work with QH partners to support LLL with CoA, CoQ, CoE, and CoI for Reverse Mentorship in local communities, where the younger can teach the older generation and help accelerate the digital-green transition.

Cohorts can start WILPs for Reverse Mentorship in a zero-trust environment and join multiple CCells under stewardship streams. They learn ecopreneurship principles and standards to create ESG values for stakeholders and report impacts via iVRS at local, regional and global levels.

Social Enterprise program focuses on interdisciplinary stewardships that leverage digitalization as a driver of sustainability and support stakeholders that applies integrated services and solutions to mitigate risks and maximize ESG impact alongside profits for co-owners.

Cohorts of social enterprise programs come from many backgrounds, but priority is given to those from at-risk sections of the communities. Our streams target adults with low skills, e.g. those without upper secondary education who are not eligible for green-digital roles. They may be in employment, unemployed or economically inactive, with a need to strengthen entrepreneurial skills. Our instructors help cohorts unlock their full potential and reshape all stages of the twin digital-green transition, from agenda setting to prototyping, knowledge sharing and public engagement. 

Social Enterprise programs use ecopreneurship paths to tackle glocal issues with robust impact assessment mechanisms such as HIA, EIA, SIA, GIA, and TIA. They utilize cross-disciplinary risk mitigation strategies via MPM, GRIx, and iVRS, capable of compiling, validating, and reporting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data.

QH stakeholders can launch Commerces and create commons pools to work with social enterprises and sponsor certificates and micro-credentials for collective impact initiatives.

Systems Innovation programs involve QH stakeholders recognizing that our challenges in the 21st century are fundamentally complex issues requiring pluralistic and sustainable approaches toward resilience building and innovation ecosystems. Innovation Lab helps QH stakeholders take intelligent risks and test new ideas in living lab environments to harness the power of collective intelligence for resilience building.

Systems Innovation programs make our researchdesignpolicy and development relevant to emerging issues and place a new generation of scientistsmentors, and stewards in strong CCells to leverage MPM for impact. Our independent instructors help QH stakeholders work with cohorts and build tools, prototype new technologies, create datasets, co-create solutions and sponsor CoQ, CoE, CoA, and CoI for careers in related areas.

GCRI's Innovation Lab provides Integrated Learning Accounts (ILAs) for talented, creative people in every field worldwide to join systems innovation workshopsseminars, and courses and apply their knowledge to global challenges effectively and optimally. Members can join stewardshipecopreneurship, and hackathons to identify and refine the most promising solutions and provide reward credits to innovations that prove their impacteffectiveness, and potential to scale.

Indigenous Knowledge programs reflect the unique cultures, languages, values, histories, governance and legal systems of Indigenous Peoples. Indigenous Knowledge is defined as Knowledge which is spatially and culturally context-specific, collective, holistic, and adaptive. It is place-based, cumulative and dynamic. Indigenous Knowledge systems involve living well with and being in a relationship with the natural world. 

Indigenous Knowledge programs streamline WILPs that build upon the experiences of earlier generations, inform the practice of current generations, and emerge in the context of contemporary society. Cohorts learn new ways of working and reaching consensus with Indigenous communities, focusing on the initial phases of the researchdesignpolicy, and development process. Moreover, our impact assessments require that Indigenous Knowledge be considered when it is provided for EIA, HIA, SIA, TIA, PIA, and GIA. 

Inclusion of Indigenous Knowledge is essential to the MPM’s work with QH stakeholders, respecting unique knowledge systems based on the worldviews of distinct Indigenous cultures. Our programs include topicsseminars and workshops and provide an epistemic approach to private-public-panet partnerships

Sustainable Development programs focus on delivering concrete actions that will bring tangible progress in the areas of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The United Nations 2030 Agenda includes 17 SDGs that apply universally to all countries. It is a commitment to eradicate poverty and achieve a sustainable world by 2030 and beyond, with human well-being and a healthy planet at its core.

Achieving around 65 % of the SDGs targets is estimated to depend on input from local and regional authorities. Sustainable Development programs include participatory mechanisms through MPM, bringing tangible progress and measurable impacts to localize and implement SDGs. QH stakeholders can create credit pools, support badgescertificates, and micro-credentials to integrate SDGs, mitigate risks, support regional development strategies, and provide equitable pathways for digital-green upskilling.

Sustainable Development programs support QH stakeholders with MPM, GRIx, and iVRS to tackle cross-cutting issues, addressing topics that affect several or all SDGs and that cannot be analyzed from the perspective of a single goal. Program streams use stewardshipecopreneurship, and hackathons to help cohorts build solutions and develop new knowledgeskills and competencies for twin digital-green transition.

Productive Research and Innovaation

Frontline of the Future

GCRI platforms consist of credit pools built for the skills development and competencies required for the twin digital-green transition. Achievements on the network are being vetted and approved through peer review and a novel Proof-of-Competence (PoC) mechanism. Using GCRI's multi-platform network, large organizations can build a matrix of Competence Cells (CCells) in digital twins and run a powerful semi-autonomous engine for micro-production (MPM) in zero-trust mode. Empowered by integrated CRS, digital twins perform in high-risk and fast-failing environments to tackle complex issues. Also they provides a productive environment for participants to collaborate with QH partners and acquire new knowledge, skills. competencies and careers
