The preparation of Cedefop Skills Forecast is supported by an EU network of experts in skills and labour market forecasting. Such a network of Individual Country Experts (ICEs) covers all countries the Skills Forecast produces estimates for and contributes to the validation and the further development of it. The aim is to involve national experts in the process of preparing the Skills Forecast, drawing on their expertise in the field but also on their knowledge of their country’s labour market. Such an exercise not only validates the Skills Forecast but also facilitates the story-building around the results. The 2022 workshop, that will be held online, will focus on validating the results of the 2023 release.
