Cedefop is organising a meeting to present, discuss and validate initial findings of a Cedefop study aimed at investigating the economic and social consequences of a too high rate of low-skilled adults in Europe.
In particular, the study aims to develop a solid and up-to-date evidence base about trends, determinants and consequences of the phenomenon of adult low skilling across the EU, to inform future policy interventions in this area.
The meeting will consist of two sessions:
- informative session (from 10.00 to 11.30)
will provide a non-technical outline of the project and will discuss preliminary results and expected future outputs and their relevance for policy-making;
- technical session (from 12.00 to 17.30)
will discuss the validity of the preliminary results and of the adopted methodology and is targeted at a more specialised expert audience.
Conclusions of this meeting will feed into the final Cedefop research report on the economic and social costs of low skilled adults in the EU which will be published in 2016.
The working language will be English only and participation to this event is by invitation only.
