Launching Matching skills database: Inspiring policies for anticipating and matching skill needs

The new Matching skills database: Inspiring policies for anticipating and matching skill needs has been launched formally.

The database contains education and training and labour market policy instruments in EU Member States that aim to match jobseekers’ skills to current and anticipated labour market needs.

Currently it includes more than 150 skills matching and anticipating future skills policies and allows to  learn what EU countries are doing to promote better skills matching.

An FGB led consortium contributed to developing the database by gathering and validating information about new policy instruments on skills anticipation and matching from the 28 EU member states.

This task was part of the Framework contract with Cedefop “Governance of EU skills anticipation and matching systems: in-depth country reviews”.
