Supporting Specialised Skills Development: Big Data, Internet of Things and Cybersecurity for SMEs

Big data, the Internet of Things (IoT) and cybersecurity hold significant potential value for European SMEs, but unlocking the value of these technologies can be cumbersome. Their emergence is creating new specialised skills gaps, shortages and mismatches, especially for SMEs, who cannot afford to compete with large enterprises to attract and retain the scarce digital talents. This year, the European Commission has launched a new initiative aimed at developing a common vision, toolbox and roadmap supporting SMEs to develop the skills needed to work with big data, IoT and cybersecurity.
 
As a part of this initiative, a survey has been launched to gain insight in the skills gap faced by SMEs and how SMEs can be best supported.
