(28 February 2012) Representatives of the employers (Eurogas) and the trade unions met to consider the bids that were received on a call for tender to map the bodies and organisations that deal with skills, qualifications and labour market research at regional and national level and which are focused on the energy sector and more in particular on the gas sector. The researchers were invited to make a presentation and then faced questions from the Steering Committee. Issues considered were: - Methodology of the research - Countries covered and network of the organisations - Expertise of the research teams - Previous work for European social partners. Following intense discussion a decision was made. The meeting took place on 24 February 2012, Brussels. For EPSU, Jan Willem Goudriaan participated.
