Model Predictive Control Strategy to Forecast Employability in Earth Sciences

Abstract : Energy prices and environmental policies influence more than ever employment trends across the world. The purpose of this paper is to develop a control strategy to enhance the employability of French graduates in a field that is both a key driver and a significant target of these new trends, namely Earth Sciences. The aim is to provide French universities with a predictive tool to adjust efficiently their skills' supply capacity with the demand forecasts at the European level. This task is treated as a tracking problem from the viewpoint of the control theory. The reference trajectory is obtained via a labour market forecasting model. For the first time, an econometric model and a predictive control strategy are combined. Simulations illustrate the feasibility and potentials of the proposed approach.
