Greek presidency’s “eSkills for Jobs 2014” conference
On 6 May in Athens, Greece, the Presidency of the Council of the EU organised the “e-Skills for Jobs 2014 Grand Event: Mobilising to Support Job Creation and Upskilling of the Workforce” event aimed to encourage Member States to put their hands on the e-skills challenge in the framework of the Digital Agenda for Europe and the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs. The conference notably led to the set up of a Greek National Coalition for the Digital Economy and was the occasion for the Commission to launch the new “eSkills for Jobs” campaign (see press release).
