Eurofound has worked with the European Commission on the New Skills for New Jobs project. This is part of the Progress Programme and aims to support member states to put in place more effective anticipation and matching of labour market needs that will contribute to the promotion of labour utilisation and labour productivity and therefore growth and jobs. A number of sectors have been analysed in terms of investing in the future of jobs and skills.
Eurofound has also carried out independent studies on the trends and drivers of change in selected sectors under the heading of 'Sector Futures'. Three separate articles were published for each sector. The first paints a broad picture of the changing dynamic of the sector, the second presents future scenarios and the third draws out key policy issues.
