Relaunch of “A short-term Sectoral-Based Anticipatory System for labour market trends and skill needs”

AO/RPA/ARANI/Sectoral Based Anticipatory System/002/12

The aim of the project is to build up a short-term Sectoral-Based Anticipatory System (SBAS) for labour market trends and skill needs at European level. To this end the framework contract establishes the terms of 3 work assignments aiming at:

(1) Developing a suitable SBAS prototype(s) based on a well-defined model, and on a feasibility assessment of the implementation of the System;

(2) Final implementation and validation of the selected model including the institutional and managerial aspects;

(3) Further refinement of the System, draft guidelines on all the methodological and operational aspects, knowledge transfer, and technical and research assistance at the operational phase.


The nature of framework contract implies that the implementation of each subsequent work assignment is conditional on the acceptance by Cedefop of the deliverables and approaches proposed by the Contractor in previous work assignment/s. In case the feasibility assessment yields a negative result (1st work assignment), within the scope of the following work assignment/s the Contracting Authority might ask the Contractor to concentrate solely on developing a “SBAS toolkit” (summarising concepts, methodologies, data and tools) that can be used as a reference model to support transfer of most promising approaches to European Member States (EU-MS).


This call has been published in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union 2012/S 49-079566 of 10/03/2012.
