Active Labour Market Policies, preliminary findings from ETF
The European Training Foundation (ETF) continues the series of events dedicated to knowledge and experience sharing on employment and skills development in the context of the Covid-19 crisis and recovery agenda.
On April 28, the event Active labour market policies and human capital development took place on Zoom presenting and discussing the preliminary findings emerging from the ETF supported studies on innovation and effectiveness of Active Labour Market Policies (ALMPs) in crisis and post crisis context, reflecting on reform priorities and assessing the long-term implications for activation and (re)skilling policies.
In 2020, the ETF has launched a research action focused on innovation and effectiveness of labour market interventions, particularly in the context of Covid-19 crisis, with a view to identify main lessons and messages for the next generation of policies and measures aimed at human capital development and improved labour market performance.
The work included an assessment of the effectiveness of ALMPs in crisis and post crisis situations, and a mapping of innovative practices of ALMPs among EU Member States, EU Neighbourhood and Central Asia countries. The research results are now reflected in two draft reports that capture new trends and innovations related to labour market interventions in EU Member States and ETF partner countries in the context of COVID-19 crisis.
