Concerns about technological progress and automation replacing massive numbers of workers and therefore resulting in considerable upheavals on the labour market are ever growing. The effects of technological progress on the labour market are diffuse and complex: on the one hand digitalisation is a driver of growth and job creation, on the other hand jobs will be replaced by automatization and rationalization.

How will those two adverse forces affect the European labour market over the next decades? Which sectors will be most penetrated by technological shifts and which policies can act as remedies for possible negative implications?
