To help bridge the digital skills gap in Europe, the European Commission has rolled out the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform, a one-stop-shop for high-quality information, initiatives and resources on digital skills.
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.
Public Libraries 2030 are 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, and empirica.
Public libraries play an important role in bringing digital making and equipping their community with the digital skills. We hope that the Platform will further support their work and help European citizens learn the digital skills they need to navigate today’s digital landscape.
The start 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!
