A big contribution comes from the national level through the National Digital Skills and Jobs Coalitions. National coalitions play a key role in fostering digital skills, not only at national but also at European level. They are among the key content providers of the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform. They share key information about national digital skills policies and initiatives, best practices in the digital skills area, as well as training opportunities, events and digital skills resources.
Currently there are National Coalitions established in 25 EU Member States. 11 National Coalitions have their website connected to the Platform, and many others will be connected soon! Visit our dedicated page to discover more about their role in contributing to the Platform and helping the EU achieve the objectives set out in the Digital Decade.
The Digital Skills and Jobs Platform is financed by the European Commission's DIGITAL Europe Programme. The Platform is developed by a consortium of organisations led by European Schoolnet and consisting of Tremend, DIGITALEUROPE, LIKTA, European DIGITAL SME Alliance, Public Libraries 2030 and the subcontractor empirica.
