Since its launch in May 2021, the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform has made significant progress in establishing itself as the central hub for digital skills information in Europe, and a home to the European digital skills and jobs community. We have successfully consolidated the latest updates, events, training opportunities, and research on skills and digital competencies – but this is of course, far from the full picture.
To dive in deeper into what digital skills look like on a national level, the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform is now launching a series of informative digital skills overviews that offer valuable insights into the digital landscape of various countries. Check the state-of-play of digital skills on the ground in each Member State, explore state strategies on skills and digitalisation, national initiatives, and funding opportunities. Divided into two sections, these snapshots will give you all you need to know to get a comprehensive understanding of digital skills and available funding within each featured country.
A snapshot of Digital Skills
Get to know the latest strategic initiatives and blueprints on digital skills within each featured country. This section offers a valuable overview of the digital skills development landscape, including information on state and national strategies as well as funding opportunities. Moreover, it provides an insight into the National Recovery and Resilience Plans that aim to bridge the gap between the skills of today, and those of tomorrow, and support the twin green and digital transition.

The second section provides information on available funding opportunities for up- and re-skilling citizens, labour force, education, and even digital experts. It covers a wide range of funding sources, including recovery and resilience facilities and national funding programs.
