STUDY

How the Digital Transformation can put humans at the centre of robotics and automation – collaboration between humans and machines for better quality products and services

Period: 2019-2020

Funding institution: European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

Client: European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

Link: CES/CSS/04/2019

Amount: 41,000 Euro

The study will contribute to improving general knowledge about the latest developments in automation and robotics with a focus on those specific cases where collaboration between humans and machines takes place with the result of producing higher quality products and services. The study will examine existing developments (best practices, current projects, concrete examples, etc.), in the EU as well as in third countries (such as for instance the USA, Japan and China), and provide a more realistic and valid view of future developments and the impact of automation and digitalisation on business (private and public sector).
