Capacity building for the chief information officer of Slovakia
Slovakia established a government Chief Information Officer (CIO) responsible for the digital agenda. This office focuses on e-government services and IT systems to address the low level of digitalisation of the government and the economy. The Commission provided support to the CIO Office to help develop a solid strategy on digital skills for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The support included a survey and discussions with focus groups, collecting EU good practices, drafting of recommendations and a transition plan.
The project resulted in a strategy for the CIO Office with short and long-term recommendations to improve the digital skills of employees of SMEs.
