Whether organisations want to learn more about basic processes of going digital or they want to find free or low-cost digital tools, the Toolkit outlines the best options out there.
Impact-driven organisations often face specific barriers to fulfil their mission. The Toolkit was developed to address the needs of social entrepreneurs and third sector organisations, outlining resources to boost their digital competencies, increase efficiency and their capacity to innovate.
The Toolkit for Digital Skills was developed in the scope of EU3Digital, a project funded by Erasmus+. The project aims to ensure the success and sustainability of social enterprises by producing key learning materials and free-access resources.
The project delivers diverse outputs, ranging from establishing an EU Framework of Competences for Digital Skills, responding to the needs of social enterprises by developing a tailored curricula and toolkit, to informing initiatives for developing digital skills and competences in Europe’s social economy ecosystem.
The outputs are produced by the project consortium partners including international social enterprise support organisations and research institutions. The consortium is led by ESLIDER and consists of The Open University, ABD, University of Porto, D Kolektiv and Euclid Network.
