The « VADORE » project
Data Valuation for Job Search
The context of the project is that of unemployment in France. Unemployment is a multi-cause phenomenon, depending in particular on factors limiting labour supply and demand. This project focuses on frictional unemployment, linked to information imperfections, due to the costs of collecting, processing and disseminating information, as well as information asymmetry between job providers and job seekers (DE), and the cognitive limitations of individuals. These imperfections are one of the reasons why some jobs remain vacant even though there is a significant demand for employment in the same employment sectors. The central idea of the project is to mobilize all available information to improve the matching of EDs and job vacancies. The project is based on the mobilisation of the considerable amount of information on EDs and companies, some of which (particularly textual data) are still unexploited. This information will be used to develop two functionalities, of a different technical nature and economic inspiration, and to evaluate and compare them rigorously.
