National Coalitions

The Danish Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition is a multi-stakeholder partnership focussed on tackling the digital skills gap and promoting lifelong learning. In 2018 the Danish Computer Society (Dansk IT) and its Committee for Digital Competences made the commitment to be connection point for the Danish National Coalition.

Dansk IT is currently responsible for coordinating the Coalition's activities, initiatives, and projects on digital skills and careers in emerging technologies.
