EU Code Week achieves new record in 2018


European Commission

In 2018, EU Code Week achieved a new record with 2.74 million participants, 43,657 events and over 10% of schools in Europe involved, including the Western Balkans countries. When EU Code Week started in 2013, events took place in 26 European countries, whereas in 2018, activities took place in 72 countries.

The overarching goal is for EU Code Week to involve at least half of all European schools by 2020, and Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, continues to encourage more organisers to offer coding activities during the next Code Week in 2019.
