B-WISE aims to develop a European strategy to tackle the digital skills gaps in the Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) sector.

Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills in Work Integration Social Enterprises (B-WISE) aims to develop a European strategy to tackle the digital skills gaps in the Work Integration Social Enterprises (WISEs) sector. The project targets the skill needs of disadvantaged workers who do not have the same access to the labour market, their support workers such as job coaches, and their managers.
