Emerging competences and skill needs in the EU defence industry - Annex (2009)
On average in the EU-27, one job in two disappeared in this sector between 1993 and 2003, as the number of people employed1 dropped from 1,522 to 722 thousands. Again, the 2003 employment level differs from the number recorded by BIPE looking at the individual companies’ job figures – the difference being probably due to a focus on the larger groups in the BICC figures.

Future skill needs in Europe: medium-term forecast (2009)
This publication provides a detailed technical background and an overview of the results of the Cedefop Skillsnet project on developing a medium-term forecast of occupational skill needs in Europe, carried out in 2007. It outlines the approach that has been adopted and presents the final results. It also highlights the many data and technical problems that had to be untangled and sets out the solutions that have been adopted. The overall aim of the project has been to develop a new system for producing detailed and consistent, quantitative projections of future skill needs across Europe. Given the difficulties faced, a certain amount of pragmatism has been required, but this set of results provides a sound foundation to take the debate about the changing pattern of demand for skills in Europe to a new level.
