EU Commission launches ‘grand coalition’ to tackle IT shortage
We’ve heard about the UK’s concerns about the IT skills shortage. Now, it’s the whole European Union!
The European Commission has launched a “grand coalition” to address the region’s IT skills shortages.
Digital agenda commissioner Neelie Kroes told delegates at CeBIT that the EU’s competitiveness is “under threat” if it cannot fill the expertise gap.
The shortages come at a time of high unemployment across Europe, she added, calling for greater awareness of IT career opportunities.
