Readie’s recent research has shown that only a minority of European adults are confident in their digital skills, like being able to code or build a website. However, digital skills are no longer just required by those in technical jobs – in an increasingly digital world, digital literacy more broadly is becoming a key building block of employment and of being an active citizen.
Over two days in Stockholm, Readie hosted a number of senior policymakers and stakeholders from across Europe to explore ‘digital skills in adults and the future of work’.
Readie also published a highlights summary article following the event.
