“Skill Mismatches and Competitiveness: High‐Skill Workers, Firms and Industries”

In a world characterised by rapidly evolving technologies and shifting patterns of comparative advantage, firms’ competiveness crucially rest on their ability to find the necessary skills required to identify and exploit new market niches and to overcome barriers to internationalisation. This project will study the incidence of high-skill mismatch in the Scottish labour market, focusing on both supply- and demand-side factors. It will also study how recent graduates make decisions about where to locate, examining how the characteristics of firms and industries, and actual and perceived mismatch affect those locational decisions.

The proposed study will be supervised by Professors Catia Montagna and Keith Bender, and the successful applicant will work collaboratively with the Scottish Government.
