IDLab Researchers Join the Council for Data of the Federal Service for Labour and Employment
Elena Shakina, Petr Parshakov, and Sofia Paklina became members of the Council for Data of the Federal Service for Labour and Employment (Rostrud), which is aimed at solving the tasks of the department using digital technologies.
The Council for Data of the Federal Service for Labour and Employment was established in June 2021. As an advisory body at Rostrud, the Council can recommend measures that are aimed at increasing the availability and the quality of data necessary for research and development of artificial intelligence technologies, formulating proposals to improve the efficiency of the use of state information resources, the development of information technologies (digital transformation) and the application of the principles of the evidence-based policy in the fields of public administration and labor and employment. The tasks of the Council also include educational activities in the field of the labor market and employment for citizens.
IDLab actively investigates digital transformation processes in different spheres, including the labour market. Theoretical and empirical research is underway, for example, on the value of skills and importance of digital competencies in the labour market.

The Data Council (Rostrud) was created as a platform for interaction between representatives of the scientific community and government bodies. We can show that on the basis of data analytics we can do something interesting and explain what kind of data we need for this. Thus, at the next meeting of the Council, we will present IDLab's developments in the field of the labour market.
