Widespread, effective application of digital tools across the sector is occurring quickly and data-driven technology is leading to more open models of innovation. Demand for digital skills already outstrips supply and a wide range of digital skill sets are needed if our industry is to be successful. With skills gaps already highlighted in digital for both entrants to the sector and those within the industry, developing digital skills within the biotech context is a high priority for bringing in innovative, new talent and upskilling the existing workforce. For new entrants, established academic routes are being complimented with new T-Level and apprenticeship delivery to ensure employer lead education in digital skills. CPD available for up-skilling the existing workforce ranges from many short, free on-line courses, through to structured learning on digital apprenticeship programs and postgraduate qualifications. By crafting a long-term digital vision and making digital skills a sector-wide initiative, we can work collaboratively to inspire and support the next generation and harness existing talent within the workforce to address these shortages.
