Join us at the virtual info session on Digital skills taking place on 2 June 2023 to learn more about the calls for proposals launched under the DIGITAL Europe Work Programme 2023-2024.
- digital skills
Are you a higher education institution, a research and excellence centre or an innovative business developing digital technologies? During the event, you will have the opportunity to know everything about the two open calls and the possibility to ask any relevant questions that will be addressed in the Q&A sessions!
This info session will cover the topics falling under objective 4 "Advanced Digital Skills", aiming at filling the significant shortage of ICT sector specialists in the EU using advanced digital technologies, focusing on increasing the pool of pupils, in particular girls, who would ultimately be interested in studying STEM and ICT and/or embarking on a digital career.
This objective has a total budget of €16 million that will be divided in two topics:
- Reinforcing Skills in semiconductors. The main aim is to define a platform among Vocational and Educational Training (VET) centres and to develop a European Semiconductors Skills Academy: a European network of higher education institutions and relevant industries, including start-ups and SMEs in microelectronics, to address the shortage of semiconductors specialists
- Boosting Digital Skills of young pupils, in particular girls. The aim of this topic is to pilot actions to increase the number of students pursuing digital studies and careers, with a special focus on increasing participation of girls. The call will support joint actions between leading technical higher education institutions, businesses and schools to promote digital studies.
A second info day organised by HaDEA will take place virtually on 7 June, covering the following topics:
- Digital Product Passport
- Network of Safer Internet Centres (SICs)
- European Digital Media Observatory (EDMO) - National and multinational hubs
The submission of applications for this call is now open and will close on 26 September 2023. You can find more information about the calls on this page.
