Digital Agenda for Europe – Engagement for Growth and Jobs, SMART 2012/0106 Lot 5 – ICT and Jobs and Skills

Article
The Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs is a multi-stakeholder partnership launched in 2013 that endeavours to facilitate collaboration among business and education providers, public and private actors to take action attracting young people into ICT education, and to retrain unemployed people. This report provides an analysis of the potential contributions of the Grand Coalition's Pledges to solve the mismatch between demand and supply of digital skills in Europe, their challenges and problems encountered so far, and their key success factors.
Building on this analysis performed from March 2013 until June 2014, the report provides a series of recommendations to the European Commission, national governments and pledging organisations in order to insure the achievement of the goals of the Grand Coalition and maximise its socio-economic impacts.
