The European Digital Skills Awards 2023: Celebrating the best projects, stories and initiatives to promote digital skills in Europe
How many people did you train in digital skills last year?
If you have an answer to this question, you are one of the thousands of experts and trainers that are currently helping Europeans acquire the necessary digital skills for everyday life and work.
From basic skills, such as using a computer or a tablet, to training ICT specialists in emerging technologies like AI, Blockchain and Data, there is a very lively crowd of organisations, trainers and teachers that are helping Europeans grow in digital.
The European Digital Skills Awards 2023 want to recognise and promote the projects and initiatives that are supporting Europeans in all areas related to digital skills: we want to showcase those good practices and help everyone learn from one another.

Discover the winners of the past editions of the European Digital Skills Awards
The European Digital Skills Awards were organised for the first time in 2016 and were followed by two more editions, in 2017 and 2018. The National Coalition for Skills and Jobs has organised the prestigious event until this year's edition: in 2023 the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform is running the awards, always in collaboration with the European Commission and the National Coalitions for Skills and Jobs all around Europe.
To find out more about the previous editions and the winning projects, we have compiled the list of projects and initiatives that have been awarded the prestigious Award. Some of the projects -most in fact- are still running and continue to produce an impact, empowering Europeans of all ages and walks of life to acquire digital skills, while some projects are not active anymore.
