The EggupLAB project stems from the will to explore new trends regarding soft skills. We always maintain the same focus: enabling people to discover their own strengths and areas of development for a personal development journey starting from increased self-awareness.

Every 6 months we work on new HR trends. Get our latest whitepaper now!


EggupLAB has been conceived, on the one hand, as a small internal research center, and on the other hand as an educational observatory on soft skills.

We have a very precise vision: to have academics, entrepreneurs, managers, and institutional representatives sit around the same table to discuss and choose a specific soft skills topic to be then further explored in the following six months.

To do so, we set up an Advisory Board of ten members that belong to the academic, entrepreneurial, managerial, and institutional worlds.

The results of our research are intended to be a starting point for future activities, aimed at exploring the topics analysed during the various semesters of activity of EggupLAB in even greater detail.
