25-09-2018 13:30 - Automation: Putting faces to jobs at risk

Other event - EPRS

New technologies have the potential to free up workers to do more productive tasks and to provide consumers with access to better products and services. While technology will likely change many of the existing jobs, some of them may become redundant. New OECD research suggests that 14% of jobs across 32 countries are highly likely to be automated, while another 32% of may experience significant changes. The extent of automation will depend on social preferences and policy choices.

Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.


Workshops are organised by the policy departments and administered in accordance with the Financial Regulation. They are not necessarily held in public but may be held during a Committee meeting.
