...and the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens

The demand for workers who can solve problems at the workplace has evolved and increased. More and more, these problems arise in technology-rich environments. So, on the one hand, there is a need for people who can assess needs and/or existing problems and come up with a solution using digital tools and technologies. On the other hand, there is a need for people who can use digital technologies to create new knowledge and to innovate processes and products that did not exist before.

This webinar will give you an insight about the challenge of digital skills and will provide suggestions on basis of the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens (DigComp 2.1).
