The European e-Skills Association is an international not-for-profit organisation under Belgian law. EeSA was founded in June 2007 with the support of then Vice-President of the European CommissionGuenther Verheugen, and has evolved from a consortium known as the e-Skills ILB to a broad stakeholder organisation that is commited to e-Skills in Europe, and to working with other major stakeholders in the drive towards growth, innovation and promoting skills in Europe.
In a rapidly changing world, e-skills, including digital literacy skills, remain the foundation for Europe’s success as an innovative society, in which businesses as much as individuals are able to foster creativity, promote education, increase potential, drive growth and take advantage of career opportunities in all sectors across the region.
