The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition promotes excellence in digital skills initiatives, because challenges – and solutions – are often similar across different organisations, areas and countries.

Have a look at our repository, which contains some of Europe's best digital skills projects. It brings together initiatives from the Digital Skills Awards, pledges made by members of the Coalition, projects selected by the Digital Champions as well as initiatives selected by Member States

The European Digital Skills Awards

The European Digital Skills Awards recognises initiatives that have improved the digital skills of Europeans at school, at work, for ICT specialists, for girls and women and in society in general. We particularly look for success stories which can be scaled-up and replicated in other cities, regions, countries and sectors. 

In 2018, 264 projects and initiatives applied. 24 finalists presented their activities at the ICT 2018 conference in Vienna. European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society Mariya Gabriel presented awards to the five winners on 6 December.

In December 2017, 20 finalists were selected and five oustanding projects were awarded the European Digital Skills Awards 2017

In 2016, 258 projects applied to Digital Skills Award 2016 from all over Europe. Sixteen projects were selected as finalists and the four most outstanding ones were announced in Brussels on 1 December at the launch of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition.

All participating projects can be found in the digital skills initiatives database.

Digital Champions Model Projects

The European Commission, with the contribution of the Digital Champions, has identified nine great projects that could be an inspiration for other similar initiatives and that could also be supported by the European Social Fund.
