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.
