The European Commission is developing a multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations (ESCO). This common reference terminology will enhance the functioning of the labour market, help to build an integrated European labour market and bridge the communication gap between work and education/training. ESCO is part of an emerging Semantic Web in the labour market and the education and training sector. Job vacancies, CVs and training curricula would no longer just be documents, but standardised sets of data which can be reused in job matching, HR systems, for career guidance tools or in statistical applications.
