Computer science education is booming across Europe as it is being increasingly recognized as critical to students’ academic preparation for the new global economy. Many students, however, do not have the opportunity to develop the technical skills needed to master the jobs of the future. So, as part of our commitment to help 1 million Europeans find a job or grow their business by 2020, Google is also investing in equipping the upcoming generation with the skills they need and encouraging students to get involved in and inspired by computer science.
Since 2014 we have supported Europe Code Week, providing sponsorships to organizations running initiatives with the aim of introducing students to computer science.
This year we are delighted to fund 25 organizations in 21 countries with a goal to get over 32000 students excited about computer science. Congratulations to recipient organisations listed below. We hope to see lots of follow up activities to keep Europe Code Week’s momentum going!
