E-Skills and Jobs in the Digital Age: Accelerating Europe’s Competitiveness and Inclusive Growth

The place of Europe in the future of ICT will depend on its ability to work together to manage digital innovation and disruptive change on the continent. According to the European Commission, the demand for ICT workers is growing at 4% each year, jeopardising the EU’s potential for growth and digital competitiveness by outpacing supply. Europe faces a shortage of around 756,000 ICT professionals by 2020, with a lack of synergy between educational systems and the requirements of the labour market. Paradoxically, such changes occur whilst Europe stagnates, with millions facing reduced prospects and unemployment. E-Skills are now a major opportunity for job creation in a digital revolution.
