The seminar focused on the impact technology has on the creation and/or suppression of jobs in the near future and which sectors will provide for the “job rich recovery”. The seminar also discussed the issue of job polarisation and how to improve skills provision to make technology a driver for growth.
Chapter 1: EU employment in a global context: where will new jobs come from and what will they look like? (2014)
The EU is a strong global economy but, as it emerges from recession, it faces many far-reaching challenges – increasingly specialised trade and production, rapidly evolving technologies, and ever increasing concerns about demographic and environmental challenges. This chapter considers the evidence of where Europe’s new jobs come from, what they will look like in terms of content and skills, and what kind of education, training and support will be required. It foresees growth in high quality jobs that exploit the EU’s comparative advantage, as well as new jobs in the health and care sectors.
