On 18 July 2022, with the support of the Commission, EU associations, companies, organisations, trade unions, universities, training providers and national federations set up a new partnership for skills in the digital ecosystem.
This new partnership will enable the upskilling and reskilling of workers and attract more people to the digital industry. The partnership will help people and businesses acquire necessary digital skills, which will contribute to the objectives of the digital and green transitions of Europe’s economy. It will focus first on improving the skills of the workforce of the partners of the digital sector. Partners will then develop common targets, for instance on the number of people to be reskilled and monitor future developments on upskilling and reskilling.
Commissioner for Internal Market, Thierry Breton, said: “Digital skills are a cornerstone of the digital and green transition. They are also key to success for businesses of all sizes. The Digital Ecosystem’s Skills Partnership under the Pact for Skills will take a leading role in making the EU economy fit for the challenges of the future. It will also inspire others – whether in the Digital Ecosystem or any other industrial ecosystem – to turn digital opportunities into successful business models that benefit citizens and businesses alike.”
