EC launches new agenda to boost digital skills

Monday 13 June 2016 | 10:14 CET | News
The European Commission has set out a number of steps to improve digital skills throughout the continent in a newly adopted skills agenda for Europe. In a statement, the EC said there could be 756,000 unfilled jobs for ICT professionals by 2020 and that digital skills are indispensable for many of the new jobs being created and fuel economic growth. Proposals include a Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition initiative calling on member states to develop comprehensive national digital skills strategies by mid-2017 on the basis of targets set by the end of 2016.
