Introduction
The European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) is a European wide reference framework of information and communication technologies (ICT) competences that can be used and understood by ICT professionalsand human resources managers from ICT user and supply companies, small and medium sized enterprises, the public sector, as well as educational and social partners across the European Union. The framework has been developed by a large number of European ICT and human resources (HR) experts in the context of the CEN / ISSS Workshop on ICT Skills. The goal of the workshop is to provide a consensusbuilding platform for both national and international representatives from all stakeholders. It aims to foster the development of long-term human resources and competence development solutions for the European ICT community. In 2005, further to the recommendations of the European e-Skills Forum, the ICT Skills workshop members agreed that national ICT framework stakeholders as well as European ICTindustry representatives - both human resources and ICT experts – should consider developing a European e-Competence Framework. With the encouragement of the European Commission, ICT framework stakeholders, representatives from several European larger companies and an applied research foundation met for a kick-off early 2006 in order to put this intention into practice. During an intensivefollow-up, they designed a programme for the work towards a European e-Competence Framework under the umbrella of the CEN/ISSS workshop on ICT Skills. These efforts were welcomed and recognised in the Communication of the European Commission on “e-Skills for the 21st Century: Fostering Competitiveness, Growth and Jobs” of September 2007 and the Competitiveness Council Conclusions of November 2007. Inorder to achieve a European consensus and useful results at European and national level, the Europe-wide involvement of ICT sector players and stakeholders from business, policy making and education was crucial. Whilst at the political level it was important to get the larger multi-stakeholder public of the European ICT sector on board, at the expert working level focus had been placed upon humanresources and ICT management know-how from the European ICT industry. The European e-Competence Framework presented in this publication is the outcome of two years of work of e-skills multi-stakeholder, ICT and human resources experts from multiple organisations. The Framework has been presented at the European e-Skills Conference on 9-10 October 2008 in Thessaloniki. 2 / 21 European e-CompetenceFramework 1.0 www.ecompetences.eu
