ASSETs+ project is contributing to the development and update of the ESCO database*

As the result of the research conducted in ASSETs+ project, a new occupational profile and a set of new skills has been proposed to ESCO secretariat for incorporating within ESCO database. The inclusion of new job profiles in ESCO data base provides a substantial value to both education and training providers and to companies. ESCO provides occupational profiles showing the relationships between occupations, skills, competences, and qualifications. This is valuable information for companies looking to up- or re-skill their workforces. The work has been conducted by the University of Pisa and Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini  and further exchanges with ESCO secretariat are planned in first semester of 2021.

/Additional background information: ESCO  is the European multilingual classification of Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations. In practical terms it serves as a dictionary and helps to identify, describe and classify occupations, skills and qualifications. It is managed by DG Employment. ESCO is published in 27 languages (all official EU languages plus Arabic, Icelandic and Norwegian). Currently ESCO contains 2 942 occupations and 13 485 skills linked to these occupations. / [](
