Economic and Social Costs of Low Skilled Adults in the EU
The aim of this project for Cedefop was to:
- develop conceptual and methodological frameworks for both defining and measuring the magnitude of low-skilled population in the EU;
- describe and analyse the characteristics, causes and trends regarding the low-skilled across the EU;
- build robust scenarios about future supply and demand for low-skilled workers; and
- develop and apply a rigorous methodological framework in order to define individual and social costs of low-skilled adults in the EU.
This research is referred to in the European Commission's New Skills Agenda for Europe, which was launched on 10 June 2016.
