e-Skills Week reached 65 million Europeans: Key facts and figures published

The European Commission recently published key facts and figures from the successful European e-Skills Week held earlier this year. The report indicated that 65 million people in 35 countries in Europe and beyond were reached via awareness raising activities. The 284 stakeholders that participated in the project, (including educational institutions, public bodies, NGOs, national trade associations and industry) succeeded in organising more than 1,000 events attended by nearly 450,000 people.

The European e-Skills Week 2010 was the first European, multi-stakeholder awareness raising campaign aiming to inform students, young professionals and SMEs about the vast range of ICT-related job opportunities.  Following its success earlier this year, a report has been published that presents the e-Skills Week events and activities in a nutshell.
