Why a Skills Observatory?

This Skills Observatory has been created as a tool for observation and monitoring of skills needs expressed by construction companies of different countries of the EU, allowing users to have a closer approach to anticipation of skills at national/European levels.

The Construction Skills Observatory aims to serve as a complement of the data and information provided on construction ecosystem by the European Construction Sector Observatory (ECSO).

To be a channel for transnational knowledge sharing and sectoral enrichment, providing relevant information for all those active in the construction sector, for companies, and especially VET providers, who will find significant and up-to-date information on current and future skills needs to support them matching their training offer.
