The purpose of the contract is: to identify, review and analyse 2 types of policies aimed at mitigating skill mismatch in EU Member States and Croatia: (1) policies targeted at unemployed people aimed at matching their skills with the available jobs and (2) policies and actions focused on dealing with current or anticipated skill shortages. The project entails a thorough academic and policy review of policies and practices in all EU Member States and Croatia and an in-depth analysis of a limited number of initiatives in selected countries that can serve as examples. The evidence gathered in the course of the project will provide information on the effectiveness of skill mismatch policies and their transferability across EU Member States characterised by different institutional and policy contexts. It will complement Cedefop’s recent analysis on the drivers and impacts of skill mismatch and groups particularly affected by it. The ultimate goal is to collect new insights on skill mismatch that can be brought to the attention of policy makers and decision makers.
