Panteia conducts extensive research into the current and future interactions between supply and demand on the labour market, the connection between education and the labour market, labour relations and the effectiveness of labour market measures.
The government, the economy and society have an interest in low unemployment rates and in filling vacancies as smoothly as possible. Young people should also be as well prepared as possible to enter the labour market. Panteia is conducting research into the European, national, regional and sectoral match between supply and demand in the labour market for more than thirty years. Panteia has large experience in investing in the (macro) effectiveness of vocational education and the extent to which labour market policies help the unemployed to enter the labour market. We not only analyse the current labour market situation but also map out – with the PRISMA prognosis model – what the demand for labour will look like in the coming years. Based on this we can, for example, determine students’ chances of finding a job after a particular study.
We also provide our clients with facts and figures, together with an interpretation of their significance to assess the impact of (labour market) policy to be developed, provide solutions for current and future bottlenecks on the labour market and the connection between vocational education and the labour market.
Themes covered include:
Labour market policy of sectors and regions
Description of regional and sectoral labour markets, interpretation of figures, research on how to tackle bottlenecks in the labour market, quantitative and qualitative research on regional and sectoral links between education and the labour market.
