Conference on 'Automation in transport: how does it affect the labour force?'

20/11/2018

The European Commission organised a participatory PDF iconconference on the impact of automation in transport on the labour force on 20 November 2018 in Brussels.

Automation in transport will affect both transport users and the transport workforce – and possibly other sectors of the workforce (e.g. insurance, manufacturing). As a first step, this conference focused on the most important trends in automated transport and how they affect the labour force in transport.

The PDF iconbackground paper – which makes no claim to completeness – provides an input to the discussions on the most important trends in automated transport and how they affect the labour force. It also looks at policy action at European Union (EU) level addressing the identified challenges.
