e-Competence Framework Survey


The European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) version 1.0 was published in November 2008 by the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN). CEPIS played an active role in its development and chaired the original development meetings. It provides a pan-European neutral reference for ICT professional competences across all industry sectors. The e-Competence Framework development was part of the European Commission's e-skills strategy for the 21st century.


ICT stakeholder feedback regarding practical use of the e-CF demonstrates that the framework has the potential to become a major European asset. Continuous improvement is an essential element of ensuring the e-CF maturity and relevance. The next e-CF version 2.0 is planned for publication in Autumn 2010.
