P. 292-299.
Itsakov E., Kazantsev N., Янгутова С. Ч., Torshin D., Альчикова М. С.

In this paper we reflect on the potential employment impacts of national digital strategies. Traditional industries will be affected, and many employees will lose jobs. Ensuring their adaptation to digital economy is a responsibility co-shared between national governments, universities and employees themselves. We compare government investments into higher education and lifelong learning programs between OECD countries and state that there is a need for systematic continuous educational programs on digital skills where they are underinvested.
