Microsoft Corp today announced it will invest 5 million euro in cash and software in non-governmental organisations (NGO) that run community skills training projects in 30 countries across Europe.
Almost 300 million Europeans have no e-skills, investing into community-based projects to further advance e-inclusion in Europe.
Over the next three years, it will reach 4.7 million people in over 3,000 Community Technology Centers across Europe. Microsoft is also supporting the launch of Telecentre-Europe.org at the e-Inclusion Ministerial Conference in Vienna. The network of telecentres is dedicated to strengthening digital inclusion actions through knowledge exchange and advocacy.
