Launch of the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs
On March 4th the Commission launched its Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs. This Coalition of Europe’s digital businesses, governments, training and education sectors aims to address up to 900 000 job vacancies expected to exist in Europe in ICT by 2015. Initial commitments from stakeholders have been endorsed with over 15 companies and organisations signing up to the Grand Coalition. Among the first pledges to come to life is a new online learning platform (the Academy Cube) and a new training module for energy smart grid installers.
