Cedefop's latest report on skills (The skills matching challenge: analysing skill mismatch and policy implications), argues that matching skills with jobs is of critical importance for a well-functioning labour market
Director Aviana Bulgarelli presented the results of Cedefop’s latest forecasts on the projected demand and supply of skills up to 2020 at a conference held in Brussels on 4 February 2010. The conference, New Skills for New Jobs: Action Now, focused on the findings of the expert group set up in March 2009 to advise the Commission on how to put the New Skills for New Jobs initiative into practice.
Cedefops forecasts on the demand (2008) and supply (2009) of skills are intended to provide information on trends. This years study focused on which skills people will be offering in the next ten years.
