Digital Skills and Their Development in the Czech Republic

Eva Kasparova

Abstract


The process of digitization keeps accelerating and the consequences of the transformation of the existing traditional practices is manifesting in all areas of human life. However, technological advances bring a whole range of significant changes that put increased demands on both their adoption and their successful management and, last but not least, the continued effective improvement of the development. To meet these requirements and to ensure the efficiency of transformation processes associated with growing digitization, digital skills are an indispensable necessity. Digital skills are the core stone of the 4.0 industrial revolution. The paper analyses the state of digital skills in the Czech Republic in the years 2014-2016. The Czech Republic is developing a number of initiatives to contribute to the development of digital skills. However, it is important to build a closer relationship and cooperation between industry, research centres and universities to reflect the reality effectively and appropriately. The document draws conclusions and makes recommendations based on the research findings, which are the subject of discussion.
