Europe’s industry is mainly made by Small and Medium-sized enterprises, which make up the vast majority of companies.
Even though Europe’s industry is characterized by strength and innovativeness, the current risk is to fall behind in the global digital race.
There is a huge gap of digitally skilled workforce across the continent, resulting in an estimated digital skills lack of as many as 750.000 workers.
Considering that we are currently in the middle of the fourth industrial revolution, this gap is poised to grow ever more rapidly.
The European Digital SME Alliance offers opportunities to reduce this gap.
