DigiCulTS will put the emphasis on the cultural aspects of our digital society focused on SMEs up to 50 employees. In reference to the "Digital Education Action Plan" COM (2018)22 and to the European Digital Competence Framework of "JRS science Hub" (e.g. Dig Comp, DigComp in Action, DigCompOrg, DigCompEdu, EntreComp, DigCompConsumers) we will point out that "digital competence is a key transversal competence that means being able to use digital technologies in a critical, collaborative and creative way." (DigComp into Action (2018), 7). Following priority 2 of the "Digital Education Action Plan" COM (2018) we will develop "relevant digital competencies and skills for the digital transformation". (COM (2018) 22, 4) DigiCulTS will support SMEs to find their place in a "Digital Society." SMEs will be able to diagnose and reflect their status quo of transversal, especially digital competences by a user-friendly tool at European level. It will show the strengths and the weaknesses at the moment. Future perspectives will be learnt by reflecting aspects of "Digital Culture" in an online course. E-Learning courses will suggest related MOOCs and Open Education Resources (OER). What our project is aiming at is to enhance the digital skills and competences and to increase active citizenship by fostering self-awareness by (self-)reflection. What we want, is to invite entrepreneurs/managers and employees of Small and Medium Enterprises to play an active role in society.
