At the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, employment opportunities requiring ICT competencies are already plentiful, but vacancies are difficult to fill as qualifications do not match with the requirements of the employers.The PIN network will contribute to addressing this challenge by fostering better interaction between key stakeholders involving:
- industry organisations which have in-depth experience of e-Jobs, Internet-related jobs and direct access to SMEs (technology suppliers and users);
-VET institutions with a focus on e-Jobs and Internet-related jobs;
-relevant public authorities and intermediary organisations.
The project objectives are to improve the employability of job seekers, reduce the e-skills shortages on the EU labour market, improve the quality of Vocational Education & Training (VET) in the field of e-Jobs and make VET more transparent and comparable at European level.
