UNTANGLED is a three-year interdisciplinary Horizon 2020 research project that seeks to examine the interconnected trends of globalisation, demographic change and technological transformation, and their effects on labour markets in the European Union and beyond. By engaging a broad range of stakeholders, including companies and civil society organisations, we will develop practical policy proposals to help governments cushion the negative impacts of these trends and ensure their benefits are enjoyed fairly across regions and sectors.
Policymakers in the European Union should address labour-market challenges by prioritising active, targeted measures to increase workforce participation and employment, attract and integrate migrants in crucial sectors such as healthcare, and fight gender discrimination, researchers from the Project UNTANGLED recommend.
The UNTANGLED webinar on 18 January 2024 brought together 22 participants to discuss technological changes, digitalisation, and the adoption of artificial intelligence and how these trends affect employment, job quality, and skills. When presenting their work, they discovered many compatible findings.
