To help bridge the digital skills gap in Europe, the European Commission has launched the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform, the new home of high-quality information, initiatives and resources on digital skills from across Europe.
The Platform will become a unique reference point for digital skills enabling all Europeans – citizens, businesses and public organisations – to make the most of the digital transformation of our society and economy. The Platform will function jointly with the 25 National Coalitions for digital skills and contribute to reaching the EU’s Digital Decade targets.
Funded by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform will help individuals find relevant training and learning opportunities and it will improve knowledge-sharing between organisations and companies. It can help all users stay up to date with the latest Digital Skills initiatives, projects, funding, and good practices; at both EU and national level.
The Platform brings together a diverse group of digital skills stakeholders from every country in Europe, all in one place for the first time – the Digital Skills & Jobs Community. Community members can access funding opportunities, find project partners, share content and resources, and network with peers and experts.
The Platform offers a wide range of content and community features including:
- EU and national initiatives and actions in digital skills and jobs
- Training opportunities and career development support
- Good practices, expert advice, resources and tools
- Data, research-based facts and figures
- Funding opportunities and financial instruments
- Thriving interactive community spaces
- News, opinions and events from across Europe.
LIKTA is delighted to be part of the consortium that has developed the new European Commission funded platform. The team is led by European Schoolnet and includes Tremend, DIGITALEUROPE, LIKTA, European DIGITAL SME Alliance, Public Libraries 2030 and empirica.
The launch of the Platform is just the beginning of the progressive development of the content and features of the website and the ongoing growth of its community over the coming years. Together with our consortium partners we are proud to be part of this exciting project and contributing to Europe’s Digital Transformation!
