It generates 25% of total business expenditure in Research and Development (R&D), and investments in ICT account for 50% of all European productivity growth. As a result, global market has begun to change as it is now based on people with excellent knowledge of digital skills and practices. Unfortunately, in the European area, this development has not yet reached the desired level.
