By appointment of the CRL plenary, a Scientific Committee was established aiming to support the development of the Employment and vocational training report, by giving advice and opinion. Composed by university professors chosen among different universities and colleges, this Committee also includes other experts on the labour market.
Besides this main purpose, this Committee also promotes and encourages a broad debate of the issues considered and discussed in the several CRL projects, within a complementary perspective to that of the CRL plenary members (Social Partners and Public Administration). 
This Committee meets, at least three or four times a year, under the direction of the CRL Chairman.
