The negotiations of the next long-term EU budget are a unique opportunity to ensure that the EU funds and programmes potential for helping Europeans with acquiring digital skills is recognised. The European Social Fund+, the European Regional Development Fund, the Digital Europe Programme and the Erasmus willrepresent the most significant funding opportunities in 2021-2027 to bridge the digital skills gap.
The objective of the Roundtable is to provide a forum for a discussion on what can be done to take advantage of the new MFF negotiations; what have we learnt in the past to allow us to benefit from best practices and learnings; and what’s at stake if we take no action.
