Abstract: Given the shrinking labor force in Europe, increasing the labor market participation of women and older people, reducing the number of unemployed people¿particularly among young generations¿and achieving a fuller economic integration of immigrants and ethnic minorities are all crucial goals. To support the growth and innovation aims of Europe, however, these groups must also match the skills required in the labor market, and digital capabilities figure high among such requirements. The article provides an overview of EU eInclusion policies, of the role played by public internet access points and third sector organisations in providing digital literacy and access to disadvantaged groups, and provides examples of ICT-based initiatives addressing from different angles the employability of immigrants and ethnic minorities .
