2nd European Skills and Jobs Survey: Data Collection on Impact of Digitalisation and Technological Change on Skill Mismatch of EU Workers


Thessaloniki, Greece, 05 July 2019

The aim of this framework contract is to deliver a dataset that will enhance understanding by Cedefop and the wider research/policy community of the impact of digitalisation and technological change (including skills-displacing technologies/automation) on EU workers’ job-skill requirements and skill mismatch.

Global objective

The general purpose of this single framework contract is to organise and implement an EU-wide survey and deliver a dataset which aims at meeting the following global objectives:

  • understanding of the severity of exposure and recent trends in the use of digital, automating and non-ICT technologies by EU workers in a cross-country comparative context;

  • understanding of how technological change and digitalisation in EU workplaces is affecting skills and learning needs and skill mismatches of EU workers;

  • understanding of what forms of (formal, non-formal and informal) learning and human resource management (HRM) practices can facilitate EU workers’ adaptiveness to changing technologies and digitalisation at their workplaces;

  • informing EU policy development, and in particular the European Skills and Digital Agendas.

Specific objectives

The final dataset should collect relevant information that may enable Cedefop to obtain informed insight into (a subset of) the research questions of Table 1 below and satisfy the following specific research objectives:

  • Technological change and digitalisation

  • Skill mismatch

  • Relationship of digitalisation and skill mismatch

Requested services

The aim of the contract is to engage in the collection of data on the technologies used at work and the impact of technological change/digitalisation on skills development/mismatch of a representative sample of adult workers (aged 25-64) from each EU Member State.
The contractor will be hence requested as part of the order forms of the contract to provide a number of services/deliver tasks as part of specific work assignments.
