Research theme

The Skills theme brings together some 50 researchers who are working on issues that affect both the education system and the labour market. The work focuses on the factors influencing education and labour market participation in order to improve our systems and better equip public policy makers.

The common objective is to understand the links between skills development, educational choices and labour market performance in the broadest sense, i.e. not only labour income outcomes, but also employment stability and individual well-being.

In the labour market heading, the research projects examine the contribution of continuing education to the labour market and the factors influencing the occupational choices of young people, particularly in fields requiring mathematical skills.

Under the education system heading, several projects address the factors influencing the development of cognitive and behavioural skills in both adults and children and toddlers, and examine their links to subsequent labour market experiences. In particular, the focus is on factors mitigating developmental inequalities in children and youth, and their long-term implications for guiding public policy towards the promotion of equal opportunities and economic prosperity.
