The Digital Skills Gap in Europe

Language: EN

Posted by Rumen HALACHEV

Digital technologies are used in many sectors such as farming, healthcare, transport, education, retail, automatics, energy, shipping, logistics, teaching and the information and communications technology industry. The demand for information and communications technology specialists is growing fast. In the future, 9 out of 10 jobs will require digital skills. At the same time, 169 million Europeans between 16 and 74 years – 44% – do not have basic digital skills.

    It is very important topic for life in the future world. In this article, i.e. studies and reports I have found a lot of important data and facts regarding EU countries. As I come from Serbia that is outside EU, it is obvious how important is any new information in that field for me, my organisation ("Edufons - Center for lifelong education") and our learners. It is like guidance for us. 
    Congratulations to author!
