Digital skills: Challenges and opportunities (Skills Panorama) (2021)
Developing digital - or ICT - skills has been a policy priority in the past years, given rapid technological change in sectors and occupations. But the contribution of digital skills goes far beyond this. Digital skills are an enabler of citizenship in societies and a driver of efficient and just green and digital transitions. Beyond particular sectors and occupations (e.g. ICT technicians and ICT professionals) which develop and provide digital goods and services, digital skills are increasingly becoming a transversal requirement in all occupations and sectors.
This highlight from Skills Panorama analyses the digital skills ecosystem, the opportunities that are enabled by reaching literacy in the digital domain and the challenges related to the lack of digital literacy.
