Why digital leadership?

European Commission research has shown that there is a significant shortage of digital leaders in the digital economy. To help close the e-leadership skills gap, we have launched the Digital Leadership Forum to meet the requirements of all relevant stakeholders and develop a new generation of digital leaders.

Forum objectives

Our principal objective is to deliver and communicate current and future research results, practices, and policies and programmes in digital leadership, at a high relevance to decision-makers at all levels.

Other key activities include:

  • identifying technology trends that affect the strategic role of leadership in the digital economy
  • sharing the latest research on the demand and supply of digital leadership skills
  • researching and designing sectorial and regional policy for business
  • exchanging research findings and disseminating best practice through our networks
  • engaging in knowledge transfer with business, through, for example: training, coaching, co-design and consultancy
  • designing and providing educational offerings in the field of digital leadership

Taken together, our work will impact on academia, business, society and the economy.
