Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to analyse and understand the factors which constantly position Romania on the last places of the European digital rankings, especially at the Human Capital/Digital skills indicators and, secondary, to raise awareness concerning the necessity of increasing digital competences in Romania. The paper provides a comparison among Romania and other three European countries, better positioned on the European ranking, namely Germany, Poland and Denmark. The paper concludes that the level of preparedness of the human capital with digital competence has played a crucial role in assuring the success of the European industry. Learning from the better positioned countries on the European digital ranking can be a solution for Romania in increasing its performance and maintaining a valuable role in the European industry framework.
