Predicting skills trends in a rapidly changing labour market is a cornerstone of policy-making, and Cedefop organised a high-level conference on 13 April to reflect on how to develop further its skills intelligence research and tools in the coming years.
The crucial role of skills intelligence in today’s turbulent labour market will be the focus of a high-level conference organised by Cedefop on 13 April.
The Cedefop skills forecast predicts that almost 7 million EU jobs will be lost or not created due to the coronavirus pandemic over the period 2019-22.
The coronavirus crisis, along with automation, have had a profound impact on the automotive industry and the profile of its workers. Cedefop looks at the severity of the impact.
Cedefop organised the first online workshop dedicated to sharing information and expertise on skills forecasting in Slovenia, on 4 February.

Cedefop predicts major changes in the composition of the workforce in the decade ahead as coronavirus affects retirement decisions. Europe’s ageing working population, resulting in declining future participation rates, is accompanied by the end of the working life of the so-called baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964), which are all expected to have retired by 2030.
Cedefop has just released its 2020 skills forecast, estimating the annual employment needs across sectors and occupations in the EU Members States (plus a few more countries) up to 2030.
According to Cedefop’s skills forecast, in the sectors with a medium-high and high impact of coronavirus on economic activity, around one-fifth to one-quarter of the new jobs expected to be created up to 2030 are at risk of automation. This amounts to around 1.4 million jobs at stake in the EU-27.
