What

Regions facing demographic shrinkage are the laboratories of future labuor market problems for the whole country. The growing replacement demand and the ageing of the labour force are huge challenges for economic development and labour market transition. At this moment population decline is noticeable and visible in three regions: Noordoost-Groningen/Eemsdelta, Oost-Groningen and municipality De Marne. But for the next 20 years  more regions in Groningen and Drenthe face the effects of ageing and population decline.

The workshop contributed to identify the main issues and proposals for policy development and initiatives to address labour market challenges. Local activities, initiatives, and strategies are of particular importance for the development of proposals for the province and in coordination with national goals.

Addressed themes:

  • Theme 1: Opportunities for crossborder labour market: policy responses and ‘regional capacity.
  • Theme 2: Intergenerational challenges of demographic transitions in labour markets: unemployment now but shortages soon?
  • Theme 3: Accelerating skills development in industry clusters: which skills ecosystem?
  • Theme 4: New sources of economic growth.
