CCAM-Employment Realization through the Acquisition of Skills (CCAM-ERAS)

Project description

Developing knowledge and skills needed for connected, cooperative and automated mobility deployment

Connected, cooperative and automated mobility (CCAM) is essential for the future multimodal transport system. In this context, the EU-funded CCAM-ERAS project addresses the transition to CCAM from a socio-economic perspective by developing the knowledge and skills required for CCAM deployment and preparing for potential implications. The project envisions a future where CCAM enhances the labour market by providing solutions to ensure the availability and upscaling of necessary skills across the entire CCAM value chain. Additionally, it aims to develop approaches and solutions to mitigate job losses and relocations resulting from the deployment of CCAM systems and services.


CCAM-ERAS aims to build towards the future and address the transition to connected, cooperative and automated mobility (CCAM) from a socio-economic perspective. The project will develop the necessary knowledge and prepare for the possibilities that potentially will arise from the deployment of CCAM, and will aim to increase knowledge regarding the necessary skills required for CCAM deployment. CCAM-ERAS will take advantage of the possibilities arising from CCAM deployment, by envisioning a future whereby CCAM can contribute towards a more attractive and inclusive labour market by providing solutions to ensure that the relevant skills are available and are able to be up scaled across the entire CCAM value chain. Mitigating the resulting effects of introduction of CCAM requires multi-sectoral knowledge and cooperation between what were previously separate sectors (transport, technology, education etc.) CCAM-ERAS will develop new approaches and solutions to anticipate and mitigate the impacts and rebound effects on potential job losses and job relocations due to the deployment of road based CCAM systems and services, as well as boost innovation capabilities through the availability and upscaling of CCAM-specific professional skills. Schemes and actions that can contribute to the specific labour market challenges will be developed, in relation to specific 'real world' use cases. CCAM-ERAS will also identify innovations and key innovators relating to CCAM deployment, particularly those relevant to the employment, socio-economic and skills effects Including various stakeholders in the project activities will be crucial in achieving credibility and support for the results of the project. The development of a roadmap to support the socio-economic transition to CCAM will contribute to the legacy of the project. CCAM-ERAS therefore offers a set of building blocks that pave the way for a smooth transition to CCAM deployment over the short, medium, and long term.
