Marie Curie Initial Training Network
Research Area: 

The objective of EDUWORKS is to train talented early-stage researchers in the socioeconomic and psychological dynamics of the labour supply and demand matching processes at aggregated and disaggregated levels. EDUWORKS brings together researchers from several academic disciplines. namely: Labour Economics, Sociology of Occupations, HRM, Lifelong Learning. Increasing segments of the demand side and the supply side of the labour market are digitized, ranging from job sites and cv’s at Facebook and Linkedin to extensive databases with job descriptions and related skills demands. These developments have led to Knowledge Management and educational challenges in these matching processes.
