CEPIS awards Women in ICT Education Grants at European e-Skills Week

At the closing event of European e-Skills Week recently, CEPIS launched a new award to encourage young women to take up and stay in ICT-related education and thus careers.

To bridge the gap between the demand for ICT professionals and the decreasing supply of female graduates in the field, CEPIS ran a pan-European competition on digital competence for women. The winners of the award were announced at the closing event of European e-Skills Week in Brussels on March 5th.

CEPIS Vice President, Malgorzata Kalinowska-Iszkowska awarded fourteen year old Anna Voríšková from the Czech Republic with a €1000 education grant for her website and blog project which she created herself. The runner-up Louisa Luciani, from Sweden will receive €500 towards her education in Computing Engineering.
