Despite the high levels of unemployment, Europe is faced with a significant and growing shortage of the people capable of leading innovation to capitalise on advances in digital technologies. Thousands of job openings remain unfilled. 


Governments, industry, NGOs, academia and other key stakeholders across Europe have joined forces in the context of eSkills for Jobs campaign to push for further action to stimulate the creation of the digital jobs needed to build a strong digital single market in Europe.

Thousands of job openings remain unfilled in Europe, while Europe’s youth suffers from the unprecedented high rates of unemployment. Equipping Europe’s workforce and citizens with e-Skills is fundamental for success of the Digital Single Market.

Together they have drawn up the Riga Declaration which will guide efforts to unlock the potential of e-Skills to fuel growth and job creation.

Support us with building awareness of the problem in EU member states by endorsing the declaration.
