The National Coalition for Digital Skills and Jobs constitutes a European Commission initiative and aims at dealing with digital illiteracy and upgrading citizens’ skills through concrete actions. Digital skills are desirable qualifications for potential employers. Consequently, they are among the key factors to deal with the unemployment, improve competitiveness and boost the economy.
The National Coalition does not appeal exclusively to its partners, but it is mostly interested in forging synergies among public and private sector agencies, ICT enterprises, universities, research institutions and other entities. Partners are bound to the aims of the Coalition through pledges, i.e. the commitment to implement vocational training, seminars and, in general, to enhance diffusion of digital skills to all citizens regardless of their level of ICT knowledge.
