Skills Panorama

From EPSA - European Public Sector Award

The Skills Panorama is a unique online platform that offers a single entry point to information on labour markets and skill needs in the EU. It aims to inform decisions on education, training and employment. The Skills Panorama is an initiative of the European Commission. Because of its expertise and extensive research and analysis on labour market and skill needs, Cedefop (the European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training) was tasked with its development.

Policy-makers are the primary target group but the site also attracts researchers as well as employment and guidance counsellors. With its focus on trends in the labour market, jobs and skills, the Skills Panorama can also interest a wider public.

Innovativeness lies at the core of the platform. Its key innovative feature is blending data, articles and short briefs in an interactive, user-friendly and visually engaging website, making information on labour markets and trends in jobs and skills more accessible. The Skills Panorama meaningfully combines and synthesises a wealth of sources. Indicators and data are presented in over 2000 ‘dashboards’ offering insights on trends in occupations, sectors, or countries in the EU. Some dashboards also focus on policy themes, such as future jobs or skills mismatch.


To meet different user needs, along with quantitative data, the Skills Panorama offers high-quality information in a variety of formats:

• analytical highlights, offering short analyses on key topics and trends in skill needs; • blog articles by skills and labour market experts; • useful resources, news and events.

User needs drive the Skills Panorama development and design. Our aim is to offer an intuitive and interactive experience based on clear, reliable, open and relevant information. To this end, the site evolves constantly, by improving user experience and offering unique analyses and products, such as the European skills index.

Our success is attested by our user satisfaction rates (three in four users find what they are looking for, and out of these, 92% are satisfied or very satisfied). The Skills Panorama also inspires stakeholders in Member States and non- EU countries to provide similar services.
