The project partners will motivate young women in seven European countries to improve their digital competence and choose a career within ICT. They will investigate the ICT skills of 1000 women and train 700 of them together with employers. The women will develop a ‘learning to learn’ attitude, a sense of initiative, and the social skills necessary to find a job.

Target groups:

  • Unemployed young women
  • Women without targeted education of profession
  • Women in/after maternity leave
  • Women in rural disadvantaged areas, coming from low income/ disadvantaged families
