If Europe is to achieve smart, sustainable and inclusive growth by 2020, its population must have the right level and amount of e-skills.
Building an inclusive society based on knowledge and innovation requires that all EU citizens (professionals, the elderly, women, students, the unemployed and the disabled) are sufficiently empowered and able to participate.
Europe must therefore strive to prevent exclusion and ensure life-long learning and participation in the digital world through commitments to increasing digital literacy and reducing competence gaps. The event will address public and private sector initiatives in this field.
EIF is an official Pan-European Stakeholder of the e-Skills Week.
European e-Skills Week highlights the growing demand for skilled ICT users and professionals to drive a competitive and innovative Europe. This exciting campaign seeks to inform students, young professionals and SMEs about the vast range of opportunities that ICT-related jobs present.
