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.
