National and regional coalitions

National and regional coalitions bring together a range of partners who develop concrete measures to bring digital skills to all levels of society. Partners include ICT and ICT-intensive companies, education and training providers, education and employment ministries, public and private employment services, associations, non-profit organisations and social organisations.

National and regional coalitions collaborate in areas such as increasing industry-led training, certifying skills, improving school and university curricula, and raising awareness about ICT careers, especially among young people and women.
