ICT skills need to increase
ICT proficiency varies across Europe. There is a high demand for ICT skills across sectors and many firms are finding it hard to recruit sufficient ICT specialists, and not only in the ICT sector itself.
More investment in ICT and digital skills is required to capture the full potential from the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution. Business and schools have a shared responsibility to ensure the pipeline of skilled staff is strong (e.g. updating teaching methodologies and curricula).
