image European Schoolnet and DIGITALEUROPE launched the fifth and final edition of the e-Skills Manifesto as part of the eSkills for Jobs 2016 campaign.

Around the world, the contours of new businesses, industrial models and a new digital economy are becoming clearer. For this reason, Europe is at a critical juncture, faced as it is with a growing digital capability 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 the digital revolution 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. Its final edition is divided in 13 chapters including a special introduction by Xavier Niel, Entrepreneur and Co-Founder of 42 School, the innovative and tuition-free computer programming school, and contributions from 22 leading figures in government, education, policy, research and industry.
