During the European e-Skills 2009 Conference,,which took place on the 20th November 2009, a major awareness raising campaign, was announced for 2010. The European e-Skills Week will take place during the first week of March 2010 and
will promote awareness of the growing demand for highly skilled ICT practitioners and
the importance of e-skills in today’s society. With a wide range of pan -European and
national events in European countries organised by different stakeholders , it aims to
increase e-skills and to encourage young people to take up ICT studies and careers . A
suggestion was also made to strengthen the inclusion and integration of Roma and
handicapped children by developing their e-skills.
