Public Employment Services (PES) are becoming more and more important for Public Administrations where their social implications on sustainability, workforce mobility and equal opportunities play a fundamental, strategic importance for any central or local Government. EURES is the most "integrated" system for building a single pan-European e-Employment market, but its underlying present and envisaged architecture seems not fully respondent to EIF recommendations namely on organisational, semantic and technical perspectives.
The mission of the present SEEMP (Single European Employment Market-Place) proposal is to design and implement in a prototypal way an interoperability architecture for public e-Employment services which encompasses cross-governmental business and decisional processes, interoperability and reconciliation of local professional profiles and taxonomies, semantically enabled web services for distributed knowledge access and sharing.
The SEEMP project will develop an EIF-compliant federated architecture and interoperability middleware as well as applicative plug-in services to allow existing National/Local job market places and data warehouses to be interoperable at pan-European level by overcoming state-of-the-art limitations. On top of this ICT interoperability infrastructure, SEEMP will develop knowledge discovery-mining services for cross-governmental (CG) decision and policy making support (CG-DS).
The verification and validation for the SEEMP approach will be performed on an existing PES integration test case led by Agenzia Regionale per il Lavoro Regione Lombardia in Italy and FOREM in Belgium Wallonia, integrated by an additional scenario for EURES interoperability. Specific requirements, generalisations and assessment activities will be performed for Eastern-Western EU workers mobility (Foundation Polska-Europe-Polonia), Regional and Local employment policies (Catalunya Open Administration and Municipality Marseille).
