If you are involved in the acquisition, development or consumption of e-skills then you should be aware of e-Skills week. This event, organised by the European Commission, will be launched at Cebit, the world's largets trade fair, in March.
I have a role to play which includes compiling a book called the e-Skills Manifesto (working title), to be launched at e-Skills Week. I will also be chairing the launch day.
Keep in mind that e-skills is not limited to those that work in the IT function or the technology service companies. Increasingly the user community needs to have e-skills in order to do their job. As mentioned in an earlier blog posting - within 5 years only 10% of roles throughout Europe will NOT require e-skills. Thus Europe needs to synchronise the associated stakeholders to ensure that it can meet this demand. This is a key element of this e-Skills initiative.
