2008-12-22 04:06:57

The objective of this study is to monitor and understand better the evolution of the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe in order to anticipate change and facilitate dialogue between policy makers at the regional, national and EU level and leading stakeholders to reduce e-skills shortages, gaps and mismatches. Together with IDC EMEA empirica will carry out an analysis of the evolution of the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe (focusing on ICT practitioners) and provide a foresight report anticipating the evolution of the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe (2010-2015). The work will be complemented by an assessment of the most recent and important statistical studies and market surveys on the supply and demand of e-skills as well as of the policy debate on this issue in the U.S.A, Japan, India and China. For this purpose, the study will cooperate closely with experts from these countries from the “European Network for Information Society Research” (ENIR).

Description

The objective of this study for the European Commission DG Enterprise and Industry is to monitor and understand better the evolution of the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe in order to anticipate change and facilitate dialogue between policy makers at the regional, national and EU level and leading stakeholders to reduce e-skills shortages, gaps and mismatches. The work process consists of two main phases. The first phase will provide a synthesis report on “the evolution of the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe” (focusing on ICT practitioners). The second phase will provide a foresight report: “anticipating the evolution of the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe (2010-2015)”. The collection of the most recent information and statistical data available concerning the supply and demand of e-skills in Europe will be complemented by an assessment of the most recent and important statistical studies and market surveys on the supply and demand of e-skills as well as of the policy debate on this issue in the U.S.A, Japan, India and China. For this purpose, the study will cooperate closely with experts from these countries from the “European Network for Information Society Research” (ENIR, www.enir.org). The project results will be published in an overall study report and summarised in a professional brochure. These will be presented at a workshop in late 2009 in Brussels. The study is carried out jointly by empirica GmbH together with IDC EMEA.
