The EU co-funded ETF project TRENDS – anticipating the impact of changes in transport on employment, working conditions, professions and skills took place in the period November 2015 to April 2017.

These changes will all impact transport employment, working conditions, skills needs and will bring a shift in the transport professions.
The analysis of major developments related to the four and trends is published in a study you can find in English, French and German. The discussion paper TRENDS – Anticipate and Act is available in English, French, German, Romanian and Turkish. It summarises the study and develops suggestions for trade union actions.
