Digital4Sustainability – Empowering the European Workforce for the Green & Digital Transition

Logroño, La Rioja, Spain. 28 May 2024

Coordinated by DIGITAL SME and funded by the Erasmus+ programme under the Alliances for Innovation call, the initiative focuses on re-skilling and up-skilling the European workforce for a sustainable digital economy and society.

The project will support the implementation of the Pact for Skills by developing a sectoral skills strategy on Digital and Green (the so called “Twin”) Transition. This strategy aims to lead to systemic and structural impact on reducing skills shortages, gaps, and mismatches, as well as ensure appropriate quality and levels of skills.

Digital4Sustainability brings together consortium of 22 partners representing key Industry and Education stakeholders from across the domain and it manages an approximate budget of 4 Million euros. The project will deliver a wide range of key outputs across 6 different Work Packages (WP) over 48 months of implementation:

  • WP 3: Design of curricula, accreditation criteria, certification framework
  • WP 4: Pilot of Digital Sustainability programmes to meet urgent and long term needs
  • WP 5: Europe wide Dissemination and Rollout of project outputs
