The Skills theme brings together researchers interested in issues affecting both the labour market and the education system. The common goal of these researchers is to understand the links between skills development, educational choices and performance in the broader labour market. Performance here is measured not only by work income, but also by job stability and individual well-being. In addition, researchers seek to understand the interconnections between labour needs and labour supply. Finally, the efficiency of the education system is at the heart of the group's priorities.
Inequalities in skills, income, labour market participation, and the transmission of these inequalities from one generation to the next are also at the heart of this major theme. Inequalities are approached from several angles: gender, family structure, immigration status, and place of residence. All our researchers wish to contribute to a better understanding of the factors influencing education and labour market participation in order to improve our systems and better equip decision-makers in their daily lives.
