European Digital Skills Certificate (EDSC) Feasibility Study

  • In support of the implementation of the Action 9 of the Digital Education Action Plan, the JRC is carrying out a Feasibility Analysis of a European Digital Skills Certificate (EDSC) to help people have their digital skills quickly and easily recognised by employers, training providers and more. The EDSC will be based on the European Digital Competence Framework (DigComp).
  • The EDSC feasibility study will explore scenarios for the European Digital Skills Certificate. It will map existing digital skills certification schemes in Europe and carry out a gap analysis to understand the role and value of an EDSC and how it could support recognition of digital skills in Europe.
  • Stakeholders’ contribution to the study will be critically important. Stakeholders’ Consultations will start in Nov 2023. More information on how to participate can be found on the EDSC feasibility study stakeholder consultation page.
