Study on work 4.0 in Hesse and the consequences and effects of digitisation

In this study, we investigate the effects of digitization on the Working World 4.0, i.e. new forms of work and work relationships resulting from Industry 4.0, for Hesse. The study is divided into four parts. The first part summarizes the relevant scientific literature for the German labor market. The second part shows which industries and occupations are predominant in Hesse and which digitization consequences can consequently be expected for the Hessian labour market. The third part contains case studies for three economic sectors that are of particular importance for Hesse. The fourth part derives economic policy recommendations.
