Agenda: Workshop on big data for skills anticipation and matching

In dynamic and constantly changing labour markets, identifying skills needs is an important challenge. Imbalances on the labour market, reflected by difficulties faced by businesses in sourcing the skills they need, high incidences of skills mismatch, and significant unemployment or underemployment especially among youth, are common to most countries. In order to tackle these issues, policy-makers, employers, workers, providers of education and training and students all need timely and accurate information about demand for skills on the labour market and how it relates to skills supply.
