Celebrating 20 years of ICDL

Print page

Technology has changed the world in many ways over the last 20 years. We have seen technologies come and go, and the demand for digital skills evolve and change. ICDL has developed and adapted over the last 20 years to help people obtain the digital skills they require to succeed today.

ICDL has grown from a small project in Europe, founded with support from the European Union’s ESPRIT research programme, to an internationally recognised standard in digital skills.
