The study 'Job descriptions and employment prospects in an automated and digitised Austrian mobility sector 2040' (Berufsbilder und Chancen in einem automatisierten und digitalisierten österreichischen Mobilitätssektor 2040)) deals with the emerging and coming changes in the job descriptions relevant for the Austrian mobility sector up to the year 2040 as well as the resulting opportunities and risks for employment and quality of work against the background of increasing automation and digitisation.

Three scenarios ("Forwards 2040", "Local life", "Digital divide") with a time horizon of 2040 were developed for analysis which were discussed and evaluated with various stakeholders from all modes of transport as well as freight and passenger transport.

The discussion and evaluation of the three partially contradictory scenarios illustrated many parallels between the scenarios so that an overall picture could be drawn for the future of employment, occupational profiles, competences, quality of work, and gender in the mobility sector. From these findings, concrete fields of action were derived for politicians and interest groups (mobility and transport policy, RTI policy, labour market and social policy, education policy) as well as for companies.

The study was financed by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) and conducted by AIT (Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH - Center for Innovation Systems & Policy) in cooperation with 3s (Stefan Humpl, Tanja Bacher) between August 2017 and August 2018.
