MEDICI project, while mapping existing good practices, put a strong emphasis on study cases which illustrate the integration into Digital Society of vulnerable groups such as:
- People with disabilities
- Marginalised children and youth
Digital skills can strongly exacerbate the inequalities where it should be reducing them:
vulnerable groups are more likely to be excluded from digital economy and therefore from employability.
It is important that they are not overseen while bridging the gap in digital skills, otherwise it may, in longer term, lead to poverty, income inequality and economic stagnation.
