Abstract

The current state of the IT practitioner labour market in Europe is considered, together with the role and contribution of the Council of European Professional Informatics Societies (CEPIS). An important recent CEPIS study is reported, and a new approach to tracking the progress of people towards full IT professional status is introduced. The growing contribution of the new European Certification for Informatics Professionals is flagged, and the paper concludes with some suggestions for policy priorities at the European level.
