An increasing number of European institutions are concerned about the digital skills gap, particularly in workforce. One of these is the European Court of Auditors, who has published a review of EU actions to address low digital skills, as well as the plans for the future. The review analyses the current situation, compares Europe’s digital divide to that of the world, and examines the effectiveness and use of the main European funding sources for digital skills-related projects. This review is not the result of an audit. Rather, it is an analysis of mainly publicly available information. It does not assess of action taken by the European Commission in this area or recommendations, but serves mostly as a comprehensive overview of past and future actions in the field of digital skills.
