24 Apr ICT central in Commissioner Andor’s plan to tackle unemployment in the EU
24 Apr, 2012
As a result of the economic crisis, 24.5 million people (10% of the workforce) are unemployed in the EU today. In response, Commissioner Andor has launched a package of recommendations to boost the demand for workers and help people find jobs.
E-skills and ICT are central in the plan, and European telecentres can become key partners to help the EU get 75% of people aged 20-64 in work by 2020 – one of the main goals of the Europe 2020 growth strategy.
