The EU4Digital Digital Skills Network plans to meet virtually on 25 June 2020 to discuss results related to the development of a Methodology for Measurement and Forecasting of Digital Skills Gaps and Competence Framework for SMEs and microbusinesses supported by the EU4Digital Facility. The Network will also plan upcoming trainings and conferences on topics such as digital skills for Industry 4.0, women’s mentorship programmes and the establishment and management of National Coalitions for digital skills and jobs.
This will be the 2nd Network meeting held in 2020. The Network has chosen to transfer multiple activities, including Network meetings, online while Covid-19 related travel restrictions are in force. The objective of the meeting Is to align results of previous activities and agree upon next steps for events planned during the Summer and early autumn of 2020 with EU4Digital Facility support.
The EU4Digital Digital Skills Network serves as platform for sharing best practices and experiences among the six Eastern partner countries and with the EU, promoting synergies and developing ideas for joint harmonisation projects. The EU4Digital Programme supports the Network through several activities, including the organisation of trainings, conferences and study visits to EU Member States for policy makers and training providers, the development of a Digital Competence Framework for SMEs and Microbusinesses and a Measurement and Forecasting of Digital Skills Gaps.
