The OECD has published its “Skills Outlook 2019” (thriving in a digital world). Among the core messages of the report is that coping with digitalisation requires not only digital skills but also general meta-cognitive (or academic) skills and socio-emotional (or personal) skills. Another core message that the facilitation of skills development at school, in the workplace and at home should be seen – and furthered – as a continuum.
Zooming in, we see that Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden are ahead of other countries in their exposure to digitalisation.
Looking at countries with Aurora member and Aurora-EUN consortium universities, we see a general confirmation of the relative strength in digitalisation from the North to the South of Europe
