The objective of EDUWORKS is to train talented early-stage researchers in the socio-economic and psychological dynamics of the labour supply and demand matching processes at aggregated and disaggregated levels. EDUWORKS brings together researchers from several academic disciplines. namely: Labour Economics, Sociology of Occupations, HRM, Lifelong Learning. Increasing segments of the demand side and the supply side of the labour market are digitized, ranging from job sites and cv’s at Facebook and Linkedin to extensive databases with job descriptions and related skills demands.
These developments have led to Knowledge Management and educational challenges in these matching processes. Specifically, EDUWORKS will focus on matching processes at three levels and on one overarching topic:
Individual level fit between job demands - persons’ abilities
Meso-level employers’ demands for occupational skills versus occupational dynamics
European and national level labour supply and demand matches and mismatches
Knowledge Management for supply and demand matches
