I think we're going to see a real change in expectations from employers and indeed employees over the next few years. People will enter into the university system and then on to employers with very different expectations, indeed, they already are. They will have basic skills sets which they will be able to use at ease which might seem difficult or complex to us know because we're not used to seeing them. I suspect that we'll see a mix of those with in depth scientific expertise and more generalists as we do now, but that the underpinning skills (the latter 3 pillars)  will be much more common between the three roles within our field and thus enable people to move between roles. This is enhanced by the expectation that people have an expectation of having multiple careers or portfolio careers in the future.
