Manifesto Manifesto

Europe is at a critical juncture, faced as it is with a growing gap between the demands for digital transformation on the one hand, and the skills, know-how and capability of the workforce on the other. To harness the potential of new technologies, and to keep pace with global competition, Europe urgently needs to build an eSkilled workforce. Working together, industry, education and government have the power to ensure long term action and success that will deliver jobs, competitiveness and growth.

The e-Skills Manifesto is a blueprint for making this happen. Now in its fifth edition, the Manifesto is based on a broad cross-section of perspectives and is a must-read for those that have a stake in acquiring, nurturing and retaining eSkilled talent in the 21st century. The latest Manifesto includes a special introduction by Xavier Niel, Entrepreneur and Co-Founder of 42 Schools, and contributions from a cross section of e-Skills experts. While new, it complements the Manifestos that precede it.
