With their pledge the Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus aims to achieve the following:
- get access to requirements of strong industrial companies of the coalition, in terms of ICT curricula and human resources,
- offer corresponding courses, seminars and curricula on advanced ICT topics and
- create frameworks and structures that will advertise trainees and respective qualifications, in order to enable matchings. In doing so, this pledge seeks to speed up the adaptation and the provision of appropriate training courses that meet market requirements and to accelerate the matching of vacancies for digital jobs with potential workers.

September 2013: Publication of updated curricula based on multi-stakeholders requirements.
