DG MOVE has contracted Ecorys in consortium with the Hellenic Institute of Transport (H.I.T.) to carry out a Study on the social dimension of the transition towards automation and digitalisation in transport, focusing on the labour force.

This study aims to collect existing measures and policy recommendations to accompany the transition and address the challenges brought by automation and digitalisation for the transport labour force. 

In order to understand how the transition can be smoothened, a survey has been released to collect inputs from relevant stakeholders: European, national and regional organisations; Employers and Workers.

The findings from this survey will feed into policy recommendations with the aim to develop an approach to manage the transition towards automation and digitalisation for the labour force in transport. The results of the study will support informed decision-making and action by the European Commission.
