Since 2013, Cedefop has been working on constructing a European skills index – Making skills work. The index considers three dimensions: a) skills development, b) skills activation, and c) skills matching. These are distinct areas but, all together, they capture three different stages of the route of skills from cultivation to utilisation in the labour market and at work.
A collection of 28 new analytical highlights focusing on skills anticipation in all EU-28 Member States, is now available on the Skills Panorama. The overviews mainly regard the existence of skills anticipation methods; the governance structure (which authority/ies are responsible); the level of stakeholders’ involvement; the dissemination of labour market intelligence and the level of the use of this intelligence in policy making and in decision making by target groups (see Figure for the example of the Dutch approach).

In a context of dynamic and complex labour markets, intelligence on current and future skill needs can support better matching of skills and jobs, which is important for every country. Cedefop, the European Training Foundation and the International Labour Office have combined expertise to develop a compendium of methodological guides on anticipation and matching of skill supply and demand.
The first European big data hackathon, organised by the European Commission (Eurostat), took place from 13 to 15 March in Brussels. Over two days, 22 teams from 21 countries faced the challenge of using big data to offer policy evidence and solutions to improve the match between skills and jobs.
