Cedefop is setting up a pan-European system for gathering and analysing information from online vacancies across all EU countries. To ensure the highest possible quality of the system, Cedefop is bringing together members of the ESSNet, representatives from Eurostat, the European Commission and independent researchers to discuss and fine-tune the methodology as well as various algorithms and rules for extracting vacancies and classifying the information they contain.
The workshop will provide a platform for presenting and discussing the proposed methodology as well as for sharing the experience and knowledge of various experts in the meeting with the aim to fine-tune various algorithms and arbitrary set rules, related to:
- data ingestion (web scraping, crawling, APIs download);
- extraction, de-duplication and expansion of vacancies;
- classifications of occupations;
- extraction of skills.
The ultimate objective of the workshop is to find a joint agreement on the methodology, including the various algorithms and rules for extracting vacancies and classifying the information obtained.
This event is restricted to the invited participants.
