Digitalisation, ever-increasing connectivity and other major trends are profoundly changing labour markets, affecting the quantity and quality of jobs, their location, as well as how and by whom they are carried out. These trends raise crucial questions for public policies in the areas of labour market, skills development, future of education and social protection systems.
Through our research and analysis, the JRC Changing nature of work and skills team aims to support policymakers in their efforts to manage these transformations and turn them into opportunities for all workers, societal groups, generations, EU Member States, and regions.
