The Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs acknowledges that the ICT skills gap cannot be fixed without collective action. People are encouraged to take action if they see others doing it. Over the past months we invited stakeholders to make pledges, committing to something that can address the ICT skills gap. This could be new actions, opening up existing schemes or collaborating with other stakeholders by adding new initiatives. Pledges should concern activities starting before the end of 2013.
A number of Grand Coalition activities will take place during ICT 2013  on 6-8 November 2013 in Vilnius:
We will also be present at the e-Skills Conference 2013  on 10 December in Brussels
Currently there is no open call for pledges. If you have a question about a pledge or wish to submit a new pledge, contact CNECT-GRANDCOALITION@ec.europa.eu .
