- Call for Proposals: Commission launches challenge to crowd source smart ideas for future ICT enabled growth and jobs 
Young Advisors can inspire us, point to mismatches between expectations of young people and current policy initiatives or plans. They can actively contribute to shaping Europe's digital future by employing their skills and talents and by sharing fresh and creative ideas.
Inform and advise the Vice President on different aspects relevant to the Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) and the future of digital society from their perspective of being young people; this may include specific policy challenges for the youth constituency, e.g. unemployment, researcher brain-drain, the gap in young innovators etc.
The Young Advisors were chosen to represent young people from different sectors and countries in Europe. Some of them were nominated by Vice-President Kroes, others were suggested by European networks of young people (e.g. European Youth Forum) and the Digital Champions. One-third of the group's members will be replaced every year, in order to bring fresh views on current and future Digital Agenda policies.
