Active Labour Market Policies and Human Capital Development – Fostering Innovation and Impactful Actions for Recovery (cross-country event)

In 2020, the ETF has launched a research action focused on innovation and effectiveness of labour market interventions, particularly in the context of  COVID-19 crisis, with a view to identify main lessons and messages for the next generation of policies and measures aimed at human capital development and improved labour market performance. The work included (i) an assessment of the effectiveness of ALMPs in crisis and post crisis situations, and (ii) a mapping of innovative practices of ALMPs among EU Member States, EU Neighbourhood and Central Asia countries.

The papers put forward several potential policy recommendations for consideration by ETF Partner Countries for the review of their employment and skills development policies and service delivery to better deal with the labour market disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and address the challenges and opportunities of green and digital recovery, including the need to strike a balance between short term firefighting type of measures and long term strategic interventions.

The on-line event, that will be held on 28 April 2021, from 10.00hrs CET, has the following main objectives:

  • Present and discuss the preliminary findings emerging from the ETF supported studies on innovation and effectiveness of ALMPs in crisis and post crisis context,
  • Reflect on reform priorities and assess the long-term implications for activation and (re)skilling policies.


The working languages are English, Russian and Arabic. Draft Agenda in EN, AR ad RU are attached.
