Description

The increasing use of digital and data intensive technologies in modern research and industry requires new digital and data relate competences and skills as well as new professional attitude that is defined by the professional workplace skills that should be able to support continuous education and professional self-development in condition of continuous technology change and increasing complexity of digitalised processes and tools. The poster presents the MATES (Maritime Alliance for fostering the European Blue Economy through a Marine Technology Skilling Strategy) project vision and recommendations to enable digital transformation of maritime industry by developing digital skills at all levels and stages of the research, production and operation. The project builds its approach and definitions on leveraging and adopting existing frameworks and developments such as EDISON Data Science Frameworks (EDSF), DigComp (The Digital Competence Framework for Citizens), EntreComp (The Entrepreneurship Competence Framework). Digital skills effect span from direct professional activity at all levels (from facility operators to research, development and management) to more general attitude entrepreneurship skills. This defines multiple competence and skills groups which should be targeted by (continuous) education and training: information and data literacy, communication and collaboration, digital content creation, safety, problem solving and critical thinking. Actionable digital skills acquisition is specifically difficult in research and industry domains that are not original computer and information technologies. Despite responsibility of digital technologies providers (such robotics, electrical vehicles, electronic documents, emerging cognitive technologies services) to provide user friendly interface, guiding and training, organisations need to prepare and train their staff to help their transition to new digital and data driven world. The MATES project is approaching the digital skills problem in a systematic way addressing it at different elements of the industry-research-academia ecosystem.

Summary

The increasing use of digital and data intensive technologies in modern research and industry requires new digital and data relate competences and skills as well as new professional attitude that is defined by the professional workplace skills that should be able to support continuous education and professional self-development in condition of continuous technology change and increasing complexity of digitalised processes and tools. The poster presents the MATES project vision and recommendations to enable digital transformation of maritime industry by developing digital skills at all levels and stages of the research, production and operation.
