25-09-2018 13:30 - The impact of automation: Identifying jobs at risk

Diverse activiteiten - 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 the nature of many 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, and another 32% may experience significant changes. This EPRS policy roundtable with the OCDE discusses the issues.

Workshop - CONT
EU spending to citizens

In recent years, the European institutions have started to introduce performance-based budgeting, meaning that the control of EU spending has moved from compliance-based to performance-based auditing. These changes require a review of whether the policy for communicating the results of EU spending to the media and citizens is still adequate.

Meer details

The workshop will bring together senior communication specialists from the institutions, media, international organisations and academia in order to discuss with the Members of the Budgetary Control Committee how communication efforts can be improved and how the gap between institutions and media/citizens can be bridged by a better targeted and more efficient communication.
