The economic crisis of 2008, and the recession that followed, dramatically increased uncertainty about job prospects.

Cedefop will publish a new skill demand and supply forecast in 2012, but in the meantime, Cedefop has updated its 2010 forecast to examine more closely the latest impact of the recession on future skill supply and demand.

This situation has already led to significant workforce mobility within and outside the EU, and could serve to exacerbate skills shortages in the future. Social partner organisations have an important role to play in shaping the attractiveness of the health care sector.
