The EU faces a series challenges resulting from four global transformative trends:
- technological development;
- new work and societal organisation;
- environmental sustainability and
- shifts in the geopolitical balance.

We at the JRC are determined to provide this, starting with this new series of reports.
They provide an in-depth analysis of some of the key challenges. The reports view them through many different angles to better grasp their full complexity.
