Results of the CEDEFOP project on big data analysis of online job vacancies available on Skills Panorama

On 11 April 2018 Cedefop released the preliminary results of the project “Skills in online job vacancies”.

In this project, CEDEFOP extracted valuable information on skills demanded by employers from more than 30 million online job vacancies from seven EU Member States: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and the UK.

The project represents a meaningful example of the important role played by ESCO in labour market intelligence and big dataanalysis. The ESCO skills concepts were in fact used in the project as a toolfor extracting vacancies and classifying their contained information.

The preliminary results of the project were also presented during the 29th meeting of the ESCO Maintenance Committee.
