PRESS RELEASE
Commission issues action call in Davos - with IT sector and telecoms companies - to close digital skills and jobs gap in Europe

(25 January 2013) Europe faces up to 700.000 unfilled ICT jobs and declining competitiveness.

Young Europeans should have the tools to enter digital careers or to create jobs as entrepreneurs.
