The fast evolving ICT sector is one of the most promising and economically important
business sectors in the EU, contributing to a large extent to the major objective of the
Lisbon agenda. The latest OECD reports on ICT regularly highlight that "ICT skills are an important contribution to growth. Over 4% of total employment is in ICT specialist occupations, over 20% in intensive ICT-using occupations[...]"
The e-Skills Manifesto of 2012 points out, that employers are regularly unable to fill
open positions requiring ICT skills, although the average unemployment level of young people across Europe is around 22%. The upshot is that European companies, governments and other institutions are falling behind because the
workforce lacks the digital knowledge and competence required.
Description The PIN network project has been tackling this problem by creating a network of key players in the area of Internet-related skills in SMEs involving: 1. Industry (intermediary) organisations; 2. VET institutions; 3. Public Authorities, and 4. a leading certification institute in order to set-up a holistic approach of assessing, standardising and certifying qualifications for internet-related jobs in SMEs.
