New Skills and New Jobs Project

With the NS&NJ project we have aimed to share best practice, influencing organisations on the issues of skills development, skills mismatch and labour market requirements. A conference will be held in January to disseminate findings and a prototype of the software tool developed from our engagement of partners throughout the EU.
