Digital Agenda Scoreboard 2015 Reveals Growing Demand for ICT Professionals

EC The European Commission has released new data and analysis on digital performance in the EU in 2014. Its analysis shows that most of the Digital Agenda targets are already achieved. The main achievements in EU's digital performance last year include significant progress in coverage and subscriptions to fast internet and the achievement of the Digital Agenda eGovernment use targets. On the downside, the Digital Agenda Scoreboard 2015 reveals that 40% of the EU population have insufficient digital skills and that the growing demand for ICT professionals is leading to a skills gap projected to reach 825,000 unfilled vacancies by 2020. The biggest gaps are expected in Germany, the UK and Italy.
