Welcome to share good practices from different countries, identify challenges and discuss possible solutions regarding the future skills needs and anticipation. 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. Following topics will be addressed in the seminar: · How anticipation can contribute to the better matching of skills?· How to ensure effective use of anticipation data in decision making and development of education and training?· What are the new horizons of anticipation?
