Cedefop has recently started new research and analysis to provide more insights on skill mismatch issues and problems in Europe. Several new studies are planned to provide policy-makers with new information needed to anticipate and address mismatch.

To establish policy-relevant themes for Cedefops skill mismatch research in the coming years, experts have been invited to the Centre to share their experience on the most promising research opportunities. Combining the views of experts with careful analysis of relevant academic research has led to five overall research priorities.

This working paper gives an overview of these priorities.
