New Service Contract on “Promotion of e-Leadership in Europe” awarded to empirica by the European Commission

The European Commission sees the need to keep momentum relating to e-leadership skills going, provide consolidation to these efforts in 2015-2016, and elaborate a comprehensive agenda (2016-2020) for e-leadership. The new agenda is to take digital education and entrepreneurship policies fully into account, as well as addressing labour market disruptions resulting from ICT developments and integrating new analysis of leadership skills for liberal professions such as doctors and lawyers. The agenda is to be broad enough to exploit synergy with emerging leadership skills requirements in businesses exploiting Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and Key Enabling Technologies, and is to be explicitly international in scope.

The contract will be carried out in cooperation with PriceWaterhouse Coopers (PwC), IDC Europe and Carl Frey from the Oxford Martin School at Oxford University and the support of DIGITALEUROPE, PIN-SME, EuroCIO, CIONET, CEPIS, ASIIN, APMG International, EXIN, EFMD, ECWT and ESI European Software Institute Center Eastern Europe.
