Multistakeholder platform for the European ICT sector
The CEN Workshop on ICT Skills is a European work group consisting of both national and international representatives from the ICT industry, vocational training organisations, social partners and other institutions. The workshop aims to create long-term human resources (HR) and competence development solutions for the European Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector.
The CEN ICT Skills Workshop has been operational since early 2003.
From its inception the Workshop has contributed to the long-term e-Skills agenda of the European Commission (EC). Information on the EC's e-Skills policy initiatives is available from the e-Skills web page of the European Commission/ DG Enterprise and Industry.
