Project Activities

PIN is a concrete answer to the opportunity identified by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD in its 2008 ICT Report: "ICT skills are an important contribution to growth […] Over 4% of total employment is in ICT specialist occupations, over 20% in intensive ICT-using occupations.[…]". The PIN partners believe that the opportunity is even larger if one takes into account the knock-on benefits that can be reaped from training a broad section of the workforce in low/medium level ICT and media skills.

Main activities:

  • Implementation of an on-line Internet Jobs Observatory ( The e-Jobs Observatory aims at creating a central point of reference for all activities related to research, training, qualifications, standards, norms, certificates and employment in the field of e-Jobs in Europe.

  • Labelisation, Certification and normalisation of the entire job qualifications/skills requirements/educational content definition process of Internet-related jobs. The overall objective of this exercise is to agree on an EU competence system for Internet-related-jobs following the precedent of the European Computer Driving License (ECDL). This would include an ongoing and dynamic evaluation mechanism for Internet-related job profiles, training guideliness corresponding to the said profiles, a Label of Excellence, a Certificate and a draft European Norm. This integrated service would continue operating as a main project outcome under the tripartie aegis of the project stakeholders
  • Roundtable meetings in project partners countries to involve stakeholders and potential future networking partners. The face to face meetings will create a common trust, identify priorities and serve as a level-playing ground for future activities of the network.
