European Tech Insights 2019

European Tech Insights 2019

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is producing a growing sense of insecurity among European citizens. The majority are worried that robots may substitute most human jobs and want governments to limit automation and prevent job displacement.

These are some of the findings of the 2019 European Tech Survey conducted by the Center for the Governance of Change at IE University (CGC). The survey explores how citizens of eight European countries (France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom) feel about the technological transformations that are unfolding in their cities and workplaces and how they think their governments should deal with them.

The 2019 European Tech Survey leverages the research expertise of the CGC to help the public and private sectors better understand perceptions and concerns towards emerging technologies. Its findings confirm a shared intuition among researchers: the current technological revolution is producing a growing sense of insecurity and uncertainty among our fellow citizens.
