How does 'more data' impact education and capacity development?

Due to new technologies, improved infrastructures but also enormously driven by the SDGs the amount of data increases day by day.Does every water scientist or expert in national authorities have to be a computer or data scientist in the future?Certainly not, specific knowledge and experience in the different sectors of water research will be equally important in the future, too. However, such skills will become more and more important and the concept and implications of FAIR data principles have to be implemented in teaching world-wide.How does this influence the higher education but also the capacity development?
