The guidelines document contains important regulatory and technical innovations in terms of digital skills, including the definition of new professional profiles with a real "genealogical tree" of the work in the ICT where the new regulatory and technical innovations are described. digital skills. The aim of drawing up guidelines is to guarantee an evolutionary continuity of the professional skills compared to the existing AgID operating manuals.
