In December 2015, Cedefop started powering the Skills Panorama, an interactive web portal offering skills intelligence on countries, occupations and sectors in the European Union. After six years, hundreds of reports, blog articles and thousands of dashboards and visualisations, the Skills Panorama journey as a standalone website has concluded.

A Skills Panorama timeline

Skills Panorama’s content, ranging from quantitative data to qualitative information, is now hosted in the Cedefop website under the new Skills intelligence tool. Skills intelligence reflects Cedefop’s goal to bring together and meaningfully blend strands of its research work on skills and labour markets into one overarching narrative to better meet the information needs of its stakeholders.

The Skills Panorama approach, i.e. the focus on data-centred insights on occupations, sectors, and countries, is now complemented with thematic focus on digitalisation, the green transition, matching of skills and jobs, learning in work and other areas.

Skills intelligence stands alongside all Cedefop publications, other online tools and datasets to empower users, such as policy-makers, learning providers or career counsellors and practitioners, to make informed choices relevant to employment/jobs, vocational education and training, and skills.

Data are provided across 56 indicators, 23 sectors, 48 occupations and 28 countries. Currently, there are also 26 skills dashboards and 89 curated data insights.
