Enabling Europe’s digital future through education
The COVID-19 crisis has unveiled the critical importance of digital literacy, skills and capacity at all levels of education and training and for all levels of digital skills. Enabling digital education though adequate infrastructure and equipment as well as supporting the growth of a holistic set of digital skills are fundamental steps to ensure that EU citizens are equipped to thrive in an increasingly technology-driven world. AmCham EU is committed to playing a role in fostering digital skills and improving opportunities for education and training for all in Europe.

Future of Work
AmCham EU and its members are active participants in preparing for the future of work.
Our Future of Work, Education and Skills Task Force is dedicated to these issues and will support policy-makers in achieving a smooth labour transition. We will be sharing examples of how companies are preparing for the future of work addressing challenges in innovative and unique ways. Our aim is to encourage the exchange of best practices of governments and industry and share recommendations with businesses, policy-makers and educators.
Businesses, think-tanks, NGOs and associations are trying to assess the myriad of changes that automation, AI or digitalisation will bring to employees. There is an enormous amount of information available from every possible point of view.
To focus the discussion, AmCham EU and Mercer have identified the key disruptions that will impact business needs and the available human capital. Based on this, we developed concise recommendations for action that aim to ensure workers are equipped with the rights skills that will be necessary for success in future labour markets. This knowledge and its application will be essential for continued growth in the EU and for the Union to retain its attractiveness for business investment.
