Mr. Damir Filipovic, Director Digital Enterprise and Consumer Policy, Digital Europe
on the importance of #DigitalSkills:
“The future is possible only if there are proper digital skills, but there is also an issue of awareness raising and public-private partnership to prepare pupils to be aware and able of digital information and skills and enter the workforce in a proper way”

Commissioner Andrus Ansip:
“Our life is becoming more and more digital. We have to tear down those digital barriers separating Member States”

MEP Victor Negrescu on what we need to do in order to foster #DigitalCitizenship:
“We need to invest in education, information, public sector and by doing so we can understand that we need to foster innovation at the European level, all in order to reach a real evolution towards a digital citizenship of the EU”
