Skills Monitoring in European Regions and Localities:

State of the Art and Perspectives

Christa Larsen, Ruth Hasberg, Alfons Schmid, Eugenia Atin, Jan Brzozowski (Eds.)

Transparency on the supply and demand of skills in a locality or region is crucial for employees, unemployed, training and placement organisations, as well as for enterprises and labour politics as all of these actors are influential for effective skills matching. In recent years, in numerous regions across Europe, skills monitoring has been implemented to provide this transparency. This anthology gives a broad overview on different approaches and good practice examples in regional or local skills monitoring. It also demonstrates how regional or local framework conditions can influence the implementation of specific concepts within skills monitoring.
