Despite growing demands for digital skills, 40 % of industries still experience difficulties recruiting ICT specialists. This creates an immense worry for companies not only in the digital domain but of all sectors. The digital transformation creates more than 350 000 vacancies which unfortunately could not be filled due to the shortage of digital technology experts.
To address this problem, The Digital Opportunity Traineeships Initiative will implement a new digital and learning strategy. It will enable 6 000 university students and graduates to gain experience in digital skills trough traineeships abroad. It proposes experience opportunities in domains like cyber security, app development, data analytics, installation of IT systems etc.
The Digital Opportunity Traineeships Initiative is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme and supported by Erasmus + Programme.
Students can apply through their universities (according to the established Erasmus+ procedures).
