Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs
Europe faces up to 900,000 unfilled ICT jobs and declining competitiveness. The number of digital jobs is growing – by 3% each year during the crisis – but the number of new ICT graduates and other skilled ICT workers is shrinking. The European Commission is issuing a call to action to companies, governments, educators, social partners, employment service providers and civil society to join in an effort to reverse this trend.
