We invite you to answer a few questions to help us better understand how you use information on labour market trends and skills anticipation and what type of skill mismatch you most commonly encounter. The questions ask you to reflect on the frequency  you consult such information and the reasons for doing so, and to consider the most important obstacles you encounter when using it for policy purposes.

You are also invited to suggest any new/good practices of skills anticipation and matching to be added to the database, give feedback on the content, or send an enquiry to Cedefop about any specific topic.
