Cedefop organises the second international meeting on Short-term Sector-Based Anticipatory System (SBAS). This project aims at complementing and integrating existing European tools with methods and data for anticipating labour market trends and skill needs at European level.
While education and VET policies have a fundamental role in driving medium- and long-term economic growth through human capital enhancement, continuing VET, work-based learning, and ALMP play a special role in short-term adjustments required by economic downturns and support continuous changes taking place in the labour market. Devising adequate strategies to support workforce adaptation requires good prospective data and indicators on employment and skills with a short-term outlook on the future.
The system to be presented during the workshop is the outcome of a project initiated and financed by the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (Cedefop) to anticipate short-term labour market trends and skill needs across countries and sectors in Europe up to two years ahead.
The aim of this meeting is twofold. The first session will provide a non-technical outline of the anticipation tool, and will discuss preliminary results as well as expected future outputs and their relevance for policy-making, while the second session is targeted at a more specialised audience of experts from the Commission, the European national banks, Universities and centres for research and will discuss the validity of modelling approach chosen and data series generated.
This event is restricted to formally invited experts.
