National Coalitions

The Hungarian National Coalition was established with official launch in December 2016 as a response to the critical situation in the digital labour market, which has for years encouraged IVSZ (the ICT Association of Hungary) to think together, plan, develop and communicate manifestos and strategies.


The most important result of this action was the Digital Education Strategy adopted in the autumn of 2016, which contains proposals for the digitisation of public education, vocational training, higher education and adult education, as well as recommendations aimed at bridging the digital labour shortage. In December 2016, the coalition received a new impetus, as the Coalition for Hungarian Digital Jobs initiative was officially formed within several days from the announcement of the European Coalition.


The Hungary’s National Digitalisation Strategy 2021-2030 was approved in Autumn 2021. The strategy is based on four pillars: digital infrastructure, digital skills, digital economy and digital state. It sets out the following targets to be achieved by 2030:

  • 95% of households covered by gigabit networks,
  • less than 2% share of people without digital skills in the 16-71 age group,
  • more than 30% of processes in businesses are digitalised,
  • 90% of inhabitants use e-government services.

Results of the work of Coalition members include: the launch of the BProf (Bachelor of Profession in IT) programme, the elaboration of the Digital Labour Programme, setting up and operation of Sectoral Skills Councils, as well as various studies and reports.
