This publication is based on contributions to the international expert conference, Building on the skills forecast: comparing methods and applications, organised by Cedefop in February 2011, which brought together a forum of more than 60 researchers and experts in labour-market analysis. This inspiring and constructive event aimed at sharing the latest insights on how Cedefop’s forecasting results are used at national level, and what other (innovative) activities are taking place in individual Member States. 

The publication helps to identify the challenges and offer solutions to skills and labour-market forecasting in general and to Cedefop projections in particular; it also discusses various national approaches, methods and results and their comparisons. It provides sound evidence and suggests innovative ways of thinking about future skills needs and supply. The findings will inspire further development of Cedefop methodology used to project future skill demand and supply.

This publication is also available as eBook, optimised for tablets and smartphones. Please tell us what you think about this new format
