Digital Competences Framework (DigComp 2.2) update published

European Commission - 28/03/2022

The Commission has published on 22 March 2022, the latest update of the Digital Competences Framework (DigComp 2.2).

DigComp and it’s updated version DigComp 2.2. can continue playing a central role in achieving our ambitious EU objectives with regard to the digital upskilling of the whole population – 80% of the population to have basic digital skills by 2030, which is also taken up by the European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan.

The update takes account of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things and datafication or new phenomena such as the new teleworking conditions that have led to new and increased digital competence requirements on the part of the citizen.

There is also an increasing need to address the green and sustainability aspects of interacting with digital technologies. The present update, therefore takes account of the knowledge skills and attitudes needed by citizens in the face of these developments.

Recent events also show that citizens need to be able to fact-check online content and its sources (information literacy), and they need competences when interacting with AI systems, to enable them to avail of new opportunities offered by technologies, while dealing with the risks stemming from recent developments in social media and digital technologies.

The DigComp 2.2 update will help to keep DigComp relevant for learning, working and participating in society, as well as for EU policy-making.
