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 fourth 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 Andrus Ansip, Vice-President of the European Commission, and contributions from a cross section of e-Skills experts including senior corporate leaders, policy makers, leading market researchers and country experts who provide a comprehensive analysis of the digital transformation, its challenges and opportunities, in Europe, Japan and the United States. 

Additional information are provided by country and translations of the e-Skills Manifesto are provided in 22 languages.
