ESSA project

Delivers a solid framework to educate and train people into high demand software roles.

Europe needs a well-established strategy to skill, reskill, and upskill workers to cater for the future needs of our societies.

Today, this need is nowhere more visible than in software development, delivery, and operation — a fast-growing sector where industry stakeholders, education and training providers, and professionals need to keep up with emerging technologies and new trends.

The European Software Skills Alliance (ESSA) project will address this challenge and deliver a sustainable strategy for closing the skills gaps and fulfil the need for professional demand for software services.

To this end, the ESSA receives funding from the Erasmus+ programme and involves 26 ambitious partners from industry and academia.
