The e-Skills ILB works in partnership with public authorities across Europe, other industry sectors, SMEs and all relevant stakeholders, building upon the European Commission recommendations and other reference initiatives on e-skills.

The members of the e-Skills ILB include British Computer Society, CEPIS, Cisco Systems, CompTIA, ECDL Foundation, ECONET, EITO, euroCIO, European Schoolnet, European Software Association, EXIN, Global Knowledge Network, HP, INLEA Foundation, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle, Prometric and Siemens Enterprise Communications.
