Its primary objective is to enhance digital literacy in Europe. This is particularly important for the European economic location, for the competitiveness of the European economy as well as the participation in the European society in the digital age.
The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition is based on a cooperation between the European Commission and the Member States and their companies, social partners, non-profit organisations and education providers.
Members of the Coalition take action to boost digital skills at all levels - from high-level ICT specialist knowledge to digital skills crucial for the everyday and work life of all European citizens.
In February 2020, the European Commission confirmed fit4internet as the first Austrian member of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition.
European Commission’s Pact for Skills
As a member of the European Commission's Pact for Skills, fit4internet is part of a growing community of private and public organisations that share the goal of skills development in Europe.
The Pact was officially launched in November 2020 and is the first of the flagship actions under the European Skills Agenda. It aims to join forces and take concrete action to upskill and reskill people across the European Union.
At the same time, fit4internet makes an important contribution to the formation of the "Austrian Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition”.
