The importance of digital competence is becoming increasingly important in Sweden, Europe and globally. As a result, the European Commission has launched a Competence Agenda for Europe where the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition is one of ten measures. Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition Sweden is the Swedish point of contact within the framework of this initiative. Today, 24 organizations are part of #DigitalSkillsSweden.
