Developing Skills in a Changing World of Work: Concepts, Measurement and Data Applied in Regional and Local Labour Market Monitoring Across Europe

This year, the Annual Meeting of the European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring is being organised in co-operation with the Marchmont Employment and Skills Observatory at the University of Exeter. The conference explores the transformation of skills needs in European regions and localities. On 10 September, it focuses on the specific needs of different target groups, such as young people entering the labour market, low and unskilled workers or unemployed. The emphasis is on the availability of data for monitoring such developments and different concepts for operationalising and measuring skills at regional level. On 11 September, the focus is on the use of Big Data for studying the changes in the regional and local labour markets and the governance of (vocational) education and training systems in the light of these new insights.

The conference takes place on the 10 and 11 of September at Exeter University and is free to attend. For more details see the LEP network webpage.
