Open data in the labour market

Open Data in Labour Market Facilitation

Cognizone plays a pivotal role as the “technical arm” behind the European classification of Skills, Competences, Qualifications, and Occupations (ESCO). This classification serves as a reference language for employment and education, fostering a shared comprehension of skills, learning, and occupations across diverse borders and languages.

Connecting People with Opportunities
ESCO acts as a catalyst in connecting individuals to job prospects and aligning education with employment. It stands as a powerful tool for analyzing information on skills demand within the labor market.

Europe 2020 Strategy: Empowering Labour Market Dynamics
Integral to the Europe 2020 strategy, ESCO v1 was officially unveiled during the ESCO conference in Brussels on the 9th and 10th of October 2017.
