The Online Resource of our project Jobs for Work 4.0 constitutes 50 professions selected to represent most of the occupations in threat of automation. These occupations are based on the latest iteration (2008) of the International Labor Organization’s, International Standard Classification of Occupations that is being used in Europe as the official classification (European Commission, 2013) by ESCO.
This awareness resource has been developed by a 7 country consortium for the European project Work 4.0 (Portugal, Austria, Slovenia, Ireland, Slovakia, Italy and Cyprus). The resource contains a sample of an indicative 50 occupations that are in danger from automation and digitization based on the seminal study from Osborn and Frey 2010 and categorized by the International Labor Organization’s Classification of Occupations ISCO-08.
