CSH Team Leader Frank Neffke will be opening day 2 of the OECD Local Skills Week that takes place from February 15–17, 2022.
Frank will reflect about how measure skill requirements can be measured with modern approaches. Examples are extracting skill vectors from job descriptions, building skill spaces and delineating industry clusters using labor flows and the importance of skill complementarities among coworkers.
About the conference:
This international conference is organised by the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities.
The jobs and the skills required to perform them are changing at an ever-faster pace. Some cities, regions and sectors are experiencing significant job loss and transformation, while others are characterised by innovation and job creation. The extent to which local economies can reap the benefits of ongoing labour market changes and skills requirements will largely depend on the future readiness of local skills systems.
Organised with the generous support of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, the OECD Local Skills Week will explore how local communities can overcome local skills gaps and mismatches by helping people reskill and upskill throughout their working lives. The conference will bring together leading experts as well as local policy makers, businesses, employee representatives and practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities the future of work will bring to cities and regions.
The main event language will be English. Spanish/English interpretation will be available for all sessions on 15 February.
German/English interpretation will be available for the session Future-Proofing Adult Learning in Berlin on 17 February.
