Google supports Europe Code Week by funding 60 initiatives in 24 countries!

Publication date: October 22, 2015

While digital competency quickly becomes one of the most important prerequisites for getting a job, too few students are studying computing to prepare them with the skills they’ll need to be successful in the 21st century. The European Commission estimates that more than 900,000 high tech jobs will go unfilled in 2020!

We want to do something about that, and that’s why we offered grants to support computer science initiatives during Europe Code Week.



Congratulations to those who received a grant this year- with over 400 applications, it was an incredibly tough selection process and it was exciting to see the enthusiasm around inspiring students in computer science all  across Europe.  Ultimately we were able to fund 60 initiatives in 24 countries, with an estimated reach of 20,000 students.

Google is glad to have been able to support this great work, which was just a small part of the over 7000 events which took place during the week. Let’s not let the effort stop there!  We hope to see lots of follow up activities to engage more students to keep Code Week’s momentum going!
