Congratulations to Europe Code Week Google Grants Awardees!
By Google for Education
The European Commission predicts that in the next 10 to 15 years, 90 per cent of all jobs will require some level of digital skills. In order to equip today’s students for future jobs and opportunities, for the sixth consecutive year we are partnering with the European Commission to offer grants during the EU Code Week. These grants amount to €186,000, given to 33 schools and nonprofits in Europe who will deliver computer science hands-on activities for 236,000 students.
These grants are part of Grow with Google’s mission to create more economic opportunity for everyone and our commitment to helping an additional one million people in Europe find a job, grow their business or build their career by 2020.
