WE-TRANSFORM 4th Stakeholder Workshop

SOCIETAL AND LEGAL IMPLICATIONS ON WORKFORCE RELATED TO THE DIGITALISATION OF TRANSPORT

January 19, 2023, 10:00-18:00 CET, Brussels

REGISTER

The EU H2020 project WE-TRANSFORM aims at creating a policy agenda to prepare for the automation transition and the related transformation of the workforce in the transport sector. To do so, WE-TRANSFORM wants to establish an effective dialogue with all parties involved, including workers and employers across all transport modes, and leverage stakeholders’ knowledge and experiences in order to co-create an action-oriented policy agenda.

The first phase of the project focused on analysing the state-of-the-art and initial stakeholders’ input regarding barriers to digitalization, the negative and positive impacts for workers, their skills, but also existing initiatives to facilitate the transition.

The project has now started the assessment of the social impact of automation on the transport labour force, addressing the requirements from a legal perspective and the scenarios for transformation of the role of the workforce.

The workshop will both inform on the project progress to date, and propose three topics for discussion and co-creation:

  • Legal perspective of the expected impacts;
  • Scenarios for the workforce transformation and preparation for the automation transition;
  • Implications and solutions for the Agenda policy actions.

For this workshop, we are targeting policy makers, workforce organisations, trade unions and transport operators across all transport modes. We are also inviting representatives from other sectors to join the discussion, such as banking or tourism, forerunners in the digital transition.

Join the discussion! REGISTER for the workshop, and check below the latest updates on the workshop programme.
