An academic study...

The ECDL Foundation teamed up with the Bocconi University in Italy and undertook a study to look at the cost of digital ignorance; the full report can found here.

The Italian study was made prior to the recent economic problems and now the impetus to stimulate growth is much more urgent. A Greek study in 2010 gives practical examples of the productivity improvements and reduction in costs that are achieved through a skilled workforce, clearly demonstrating why ECDL should be considered an effective option by businesses looking to improve their performance
