About the Digital Europe Programme
Developments in key and emerging technologies are changing the way we define digital skills and the extent to which we depend on technology. The COVID-19 pandemic further highlighted the existing shortage of digital experts in Europe.
The Digital Europe Programme provides strategic funding to answer these challenges and supports the development of a skilled talent pool of digital experts. With a total budget of €580 million for digital skills over 7 years, the Digital Europe Programme enhances cooperation between EU Member States and stakeholders in digital skills and jobs through:
- Specialised education programmes in key digital areas such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, robotics, quantum and High Performance Computing (HPC), provided by networks of higher education institutions, research centres and businesses (€120 million contribution over the first two years of the programme).
- Short-term training courses, tailored to the needs of businesses, with an emphasis on SMEs in Europe, as well as jobseekers and citizens looking to reskill (€25 million contribution over the first two years of the programme).
These actions have 3 common goals:
- Increasing capacity and excellence of EU education and training institutions
- Encouraging cooperation between higher education, research and businesses
- Sparking interest of Europeans in digital careers and attract the best talents.
All the funded projects will be showcased on the Digital Skills and Jobs Platform.
