Winners of the European e-inclusion awards to be announced at the Digital Agenda Assembly on Friday 22 June

(19 June 2012) The European Commission will award prizes to the winners of the eInclusion awards at the Digital Agenda Assembly being held in Brussels on 21st and 22nd June 2011. A part of the Digital Agenda on Enhancing digital skills proposes a series of measures to promote take-up of digital technologies by potentially disadvantaged groups, such as elderly, lower-skilled, unemployed or people with disability. The latest Digital Agenda scoreboard shows that 25% of the EU population still lacks IT skills and only 53% are confident that their computer and Internet skills are sufficient if they need to change or find a new job within a year. The eInclusion awards were established by the European Commission in order to discover organisations and individuals across Europe who champion new technology and harness the potential of the Internet as a means of improving prospects, increasing employability and meeting today's complex social and economic challenges.
