The European Union supports the implementation of digital skills strategies in the Eastern Partnership countries, acting to establish national coalitions for digital jobs and a competence framework for small businesses.
In support of these goals, the EU4Digital Facility will:
Define a methodology for measuring and forecasting national digital skills gaps
Define a common competence framework for SMEs and microbusinesses
Create national coalitions for skills and jobs
Carry out training seminars and workshops
Implement promotion campaigns in partner countries
The Facility supports the work of the EU4Digital eSkills network, which has the following priorities in focus:
Digital skills for citizens
Digital skills for ICT professionals
Digital skills for non-ICT workforce, including SMEs
Digital skills in education (digital skills for educators, youth and students)
Digital skills are vital to increasingly digital economies and societies. By supporting the development of digital skills, the EU is helping to match skills with the demands of emerging sectors, contributing to jobs, private sector development, and dynamic economic growth.
Every year, EU Code Week celebrates and promotes the importance of digital literacy and coding skills among people of all ages and backgrounds. Activities are ongoing throughout the year, but two weeks are set aside that are specifically designated as Code Week – this year, 7-22 October.
The EU4Digital Facility promotes key areas of the digital economy and society, in line with EU norms and practices. The Facility is implemented by a consortium led by EY, together with Action Global Communications and CEPS.
The EU4Digital Facility is funded by the European Union.
