ESCO: An overview
Angeliki will give an introduction to the multilingual ESCO classification. ESCO can be used to describe occupations, skills, competences qualifications in documents, such as job vacancies, CVs and potentially in digital qualifications and credentials.

everis : A vision on credentials based on EU standards job profiles
