Feasibility Study of the European Digital Skills Certificate, as Action 9 of the Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027)
Please note that this is not a call for tenders but a publication announcing the Contracting authority’s intention to publish a future negotiated low or middle valueprocedure.

The recent Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027) published last Sep 30th 2020, proposes as Action 9: to “Develop a European Digital Skills Certificate (EDSC) that may be recognised and accepted by governments, employers and other stakeholders across Europe. This would allow Europeans to indicate their level of digital competences, corresponding to the Digital Competence Framework proficiency levels”. The first task that the EC is undertaking is the development of a Feasibility Study. The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, and in particular, the Unit B4 Human Capital and Employment, is in charge of its execution. The detailed specifications of this study will be developed taking into account the input gathered through the 1st stakeholders' consultation (24/2-12/3). The study foresees a time of 12 mm and the outsourcing of the study for an amount of 100.000€. The aims of the study are the following: (1) analysis of existing certification schemes and models in Europe; (2) identification of stakeholders for consultation; (3) gap analysis (what is the demand for an EDSC and what is lacking) to understand the role and value of an EU Digital Skills Certificate and how it could support recognition of digital skills in Europe; (4) validation of the operational concept; (5) technical feasibility; (6) costs and benefits analysis for different stakeholders; (7) limitations, risks and challenges; (8) propose the definition of the purpose, scope and steps of a pilot of the EDSC.
