The Future of Manufacturing in Europe (FOME) is a pilot project proposed by the European Parliament and delegated to the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs. It is an explorative and future-oriented study, as reflected in the exploration of the future adoption of some key game-changing technologies and how this adoption can be promoted across the EU, even regionally. The implications for working life focuses primarily on tasks and skills, not only at the white-collar, tertiary-education level, but also for blue-collar occupations, including a focus on challenges facing national and company apprenticeship systems. The future orientation also includes quantitative estimates of the employment implications of the Paris Climate Agreement, of large increases in global tariffs and of radical automation.
