3.11 Current debates and reforms
A committee was set up in 2017 to provide an evidence-based assessment of Norway’s future skill needs. This assessment will form the basis for planning and strategic decision making of both authorities and in the labour market, regionally and nationally. The committee work until 2020 has been to assess national and international research. A total of three reports have been submitted to the Ministry of Education and Research; NOU 2018: 2, NOU 2019: 2 and NOU 2020: 2. The Committee will continue from 2021 to 2027 to provide an analysis and assessment of the future skill needs both for the short, medium, and long term.
