"Digitalisation has encompassed all areas of our lives. Technological developments are rapid and change the way we inform ourselves, communicate and consume - in short: how we live. Digital innovations ensure economic growth, the efficient use of our resources and secure mobility. VERBUND supports the Pact for Digital Competence for an Austrian-wide digitalisation offensive in order to jointly exploit the opportunities offered by the digital change. "

"Bringing people and digitalisation together helps to increase the competitiveness of Austria as a business location. This applies equally to its economy and society. Here is why I personally support the fit4internet initiative: the joined forces of economy, politics and society increase the digital literacy of the population. This initiative makes Austria one of the leading countries in Europe."

"Strengthening digital skills is essential. In the global digitalisation race, appropriate skills are necessary to be at the forefront and to help shaping the future. Therefore, education is a central key to our future viability. Infineon is a company that makes the digital transformation possible with its products. It is currently building a massive number of skilled employees with 860 additional jobs in the area of research and development in Austria alone."

"We have never been at such a rapid pace of progress as now. Technologies that we use and that accompany us in various ways outdate each other almost by the hour. At the same time, the tools we use to communicate are also constantly developing. Our society has arrived in the digital age a long time ago. But is really everyone actively participating? Not at all! This is exactly where we must take action immediately. An EU comparison ranks Austria in eighth position in terms of citizens’ digital skills. Our country is affected by a lasting shortage of professionals in the field of information and communication technology. It is about time to push ahead digitalisation! Seniors, employees and teenagers are supported by a demand-oriented education in order to safely use the internet and all sorts of mobile communication tools and – not least – be successful in the job market. "

"Digitalisation is changing the world in which we live and work. In order to be able to deal with these changes in a self-determined manner, digital skills are required. Every Austrian should have the necessary level of competence to master digital situations in everyday life - appropriate to their own needs and requirements, both privately and professionally and regardless of age, educational background or origin."
