Bulgaria - Digital National Alliance
Digital National Alliance is a non-governmental organisation and is part of the initiative of the European Commission, the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition. It aims to promote and implement the objectives of the initiative in Bulgaria.
The Bulgarian Coalition was launched in June 2014 as the National Coalition for Digital Jobs in Bulgaria by Gergana Passy – Digital Champion for Bulgaria. DNA brings together public authorities, business, education, training and labour market stakeholders. It supports the activities of more than 30 members of the Alliance to respond to the shortage of information and communication technology (ICT) skills and meet the demand of ICT professionals and experts in Bulgaria.
The main goal of the coalition is to stimulate the intersectoral debate on the challenges and opportunities facing Bulgaria's digital transition, uniting the private sector, academic institutions and public administration. DNK connects government, business, education, training, and labour market stakeholders. It supports the activities of over thirty Alliance members in order to address the lack of skills in information and communication technology (ICT) and satisfy the demand for ICT professionals and specialists in Bulgaria.
