The shortage of labor and skilled workers has been the defining issue in recent years. Well over 100,000 jobs remain unfilled in the ICT sector. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular, which according to the German government are “the backbone of the German economy,” are being affected and are having to tighten their proverbial belts. Silicon Saxony is also increasingly concerned about this development. At the special request of its members, Saxony’s largest high-tech network has therefore also been dedicated to this extremely challenging topic since 2020.
