Transferability of Skills across Economic Sectors: Role and Importance for Employment at European Level

Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2011 
ISBN 978-92-79-20946-8; doi:10.2767/38467


Economic restructuring requires a flexible workforce with a range of transferable skills. This publication analyses the role of such skills in career pathways and the labour market, and levels of skill transferability across sectors in the current context and during the years leading up to 2020. It also looks at the roles of actors involved in promoting transferability and methods for enhancing job mobility, before making final recommendations.
