From the introduction to the Competences 4.0 report
"For many years, the process of free market economic transformation and integration with European Union structures provided us with ready-made modernisation models.
This had its costs when we tried to apply Western recipes too dogmatically or we failed to reflect on the economic and social conditions that differentiate Poland from Western countries. However, it also had undeniable advantages - for a long time after 1989, the developing Polish economy could rely on solutions that had previously been implemented by the most developed countries in the world. We could learn from our mistakes and benefit from the late comer's pension, which allowed us to implement the best, most modern solutions right away. Today, however, the situation has been different for at least several years. The development of Industry 4.0 and related competences 4.0 makes us face questions to which there are no ready answers - how to prepare our society and economy for the challenges brought by digitisation, automation, robotisation and other elements of Industry 4.0.
In addition, the matter is complicated by the current COVID-19 pandemic, which also has a significant impact on the development of digital competences, forcing the mass adoption of e-commerce, remote working and learning, etc. This report is an attempt to answer at least some of these questions, and a starting point for further discussion on the competences of the future - in society and in business. This is important if we want to move from an imitative economy to an innovative economy".
