The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union reached a provisional agreement on the Digital Europe programme for 2021-2027, which will invest in five digital sectors: high performance computing, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and trust. In the budget, it is included € 700 million to be invested on large-scale digital capacity and digital skills. The goal is to ensure that the current and future workforce will have the opportunity to acquire advanced digital skills through training courses and job traineeships, in any Member State of residence. Digital Innovation Hubs will implement programmes to support small and medium-sized companies and public administrations to equip their staff with the needed advanced skills to deal with supercomputing, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.
