CEEMET President Diego Andreis, used the angle as entrepreneur for his speech. Topics on education (skillsgap) and cybersecurity dominated. A 5G network is good for business, but what is it worth if it is not safe.
President Andreis reminded the audience that he highlighted last year to Commissioner Oettinger the importance of establishing a Chief Digitalisation Officer in schools. This in order to match skills and needs for the digital transformation.
Not an unnecessary luxury it seems as the DESI figure shows that 44% of Europeans lack basic digital skills. A CDO in schools would boost and deepen the cooperation between companies and education providers. Through a regular exchange companies and education providers should adjust education paths to the needs of the labour markets.
