This project aims to create a deeper understanding for the consequences of technologies for individuals in the labor market, by examining how firms' employment strategies handle the effects of the transformation. The project focuses on the Swedish manufacturing industry and advanced manufacturing-related service sector. How do companies develop their skills resources in times of technological change? What new demands are placed on the employees? What are the consequences for workers? These are important questions to answer, in order to understand the challenges that technological development creates for different groups in the labor market, and how these challenges can be met.
