In this edition of our newsletter, we sift through ITPE highlights from 2020. Last year, we held the IT Professionalism Online Conference, e-CF User Group and Ethics Group meetings. The e-CF 4.0 was launched at the beginning of the year, and we have followed up with the ‘e-CF Explorer’, which guides new users through the updated e-Competence Framework. See the full list, as well as more recent news, below.

We look forward to continuing our work with our members and partners to promote IT professionalism across Europe in 2021!
