Inclusive Futures for Europe BEYOND the impacts of Industrie 4.0 and Digital Disruption

Objective

BEYOND4.0 aims to help deliver an inclusive European future by examining the impact of the new technologies on the future of jobs, business models and welfare. We use a multidisciplinary research approach undertaken by a top-tier consortium with stakeholder engagement throughout the project.
BEYOND4.0 has five objectives: 1. Provide new, scientific insight into technological transformation; 2. Provide new, scientific insight into company strategies dealing with technological transformation; 3. Examine the impact of technological transformation on: a. quality, content, and distribution of work; b. skill needs; c. education and training; d. value creation by companies; 4. Identify policy options for: a. fiscal policy (e.g. robot taxes); b. welfare policy (e.g. basic income); 5. Identify social investment approaches and tools for inclusive growth.
BEYOND4.0 generates this by: 1. Building on state-of-the-art research and other EU projects, 2. Using innovative methods, and 3. Combining historical, EU-wide, regional and company level data. We generate three new outcomes: 1. Scientific understanding of new technology impact; 2. Diagnostic and developmental tools to lever technological opportunities; 3. Evidence-based support for social and competitive EU policy strategy. BEYOND4.0 carefully disseminates and valorises results.
BEYOND4.0 addresses the general priorities of the H2020 Work Programme (2018-2020) ‘Europe in a changing world - Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies’. We will: 1. Better address challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution in context of digitisation by providing alternative policy options; 2. Contribute to equitable, sustainable prosperity through scientific evaluations, co-creation and bottom-up solutions; 3. Contribute to UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 1, 2, 5, 8 and 9. In conclusion, we provide insights and measures that help address poverty, equality, decent work, inFormulating an alternative for a low road Industry 4.0. approach.
