Brussels, 24 September (DIGITAL SME). Europe is finally ramping up its efforts to increase digital skills. In DIGITAL SME’s Skills Strategy 2030, a number of measures to close the 1,000,000-strong digital skills gap in Europe are outlined. The strategy called for the creation of a public-private “Pact for digital Skills” partnership based on four pillars: the creation of a training and education platform, intelligence gathering and foresight development, strengthening of existing ecosystems and supporting EU digital sovereignty. 

The new Digital Skills and Jobs Platform is an ambitious step towards this goal. Together with top European skills stakeholders, DIGITAL SME will contribute to its development and promotion among businesses, citizens, and public administrations in Europe.

Combating fragmentation and a lack of coordination

Although several successful digital skills initiatives exist on the national, regional or local levels in Europe, they are often fragmented, and best practices hardly make it across state lines. There is also a lack of coordination, structure and information among skills initiatives. Good practices, resources, and funding opportunities do not receive sufficient promotion or do not reach their target audiences across the EU.

To overcome this fragmentation, DIGITAL SME and its partners will cooperate with the European Commission to develop a Europe-wide “one-stop-shop” platform for all information and resources on digital skills and jobs.
