Background and organisers: Anticipating and skills development for the future is essential in rapidly changing labour markets. Digitalisation, globalisation, demographic and other changes are constantly reshaping skills needs. Skills shortages and skills mismatch are costly for the whole society and therefore changes need to be tackled through more effective anticipation of skills needs and by better responsiveness of skills development. Understanding current and future labour market demands helps to formulate skills development and active labour market policies. Relevant labour market information on current and future skill needs also supports individual decisions and career counselling and vocational guidance services. The seminar is organized by The Finnish National Agency for Education (Finnish Erasmus+ National Agency in cooperation with Foresight Unit).
