The EU is boosting its digital talent: new DIGITAL Call for education programmes in key digital technologies
Check out the new opportunities for education programme and courses under the DIGITAL Europe Programme. Funding is available for universities, research centres and business to join forces to develop Bachelor's and Master's courses. These must address digital domains or multi-disciplinary courses empowering professionals in non-ICT sectors with digital skills. The applications will open on 29 September 2022 and close in January 2023.
All Member States are currently facing a shortage of ICT specialists, as pointed out also by the last findings from Cedefop’s second European skills and jobs survey. New jobs mixing sectoral competences with a proficient understanding of key digital technologies are in high-demand everywhere. Young people are looking for programmes and courses to prepare them for jobs in the green and digital economy.
The new Call under the DIGITAL Europe Programme, 'Specialised education programmes or modules in key capacity areas', will support the development of Bachelor's and Master's courses, jointly designed by universities, research centres and businesses active in the digital domain.
This action will boost cooperation between academic excellence, research and innovative industries, improve and upgrade technical equipment and interoperability among universities and provide support to students who want to attend the new courses. The new programmes will underpin Europe’s digital sovereignty and they will help to attract and retain the best talents from around the world.
The applications will open on 29 September 2022.
