This report describes experts’ views on what it means to be digitally competent today. Although experts‘ views vary, the method applied in this study enables to derive an aggregated view on digital competence. The report identifies twelve areas of digital competence, some of them relating to specific purposes (e.g. communication and collaboration), others to domains (e.g. privacy and security). The twelve areas are presented through a brief description and further illustrated by statements describing a rich pallet of knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to each area.
