Ideas and experience: Today we are in an era of unprecedented technological progress, where innovation can be deployed for the service of humans in their desire to improve the state of the world around them. It is becoming evident that digital competences and skills are of upmost importance to progress on interoperability and digital transformation. In particular, to ensure digital sovereignty it is fundamental to equip civil servants with the right skills and competences.
To address this challenge, the ISA2 Programme, European Commission, funded a new action in 2019, the ‘Interoperability Academy’ in order to equip civil servants with advanced digital skills via educational resources focused on interoperability. The Interoperability Academy will offer specialised training in a structured way via an open and distance-learning platform accessible world-wide, 24/7. The eLearning platform will be hosted inside a larger pan-European eLearning platform and contain courses which are developed by reusing all the available material generated by ISA/ISA² Programmes and Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Building Blocks. It will also offer a mix of eLearning and face-to-face activities such as seminars, workshops, live webinars and summer/winter schools. In this way, the Interoperability Academy will bridge the digital skills gap across Europe by allowing learners to study a variety of interoperability-related courses anytime (when they want) and anyplace (where they want), increasing educational access and educational choice.
