Erasmus+ and Horizon2020 Initiative Contributes to Narrowing the Digital Skills Gap

European CommissionA new pilot project, created jointly under Erasmus+ and Horizon2020, will endeavour to help minimise the gap between the supply and demand of digital skills by providing 5,000-6,000 graduate students with work experience in the ICT field. The internships will focus on ‘deep-tech’ skills, such as coding, artificial intelligence, big data, cybersecurity, quantum computing, digital marketing, software development and others. The main aim of this initiative is to equip students with skills needed to meet labour market demands in an increasingly digitalised world.
