Digitalisation and e-Government

Digital literacy

In addition to technical skills, digital education also means being able to use digital media in a competent and reflective manner and is a key qualification for participation in modern society. Dealing consciously and responsibly with data and critically evaluating sources of information is one of today's cultural techniques such as reading, writing and arithmetic.

Digital literacy is therefore a must on the way in the future. However, 40 percent of people in the EU have no or little digital education - the result: Every second person finds it difficult to get employment. These facts must be counteracted. Target-group support for entry into the digital age should help to overcome inhibitions.
