Implications of digitalisation for areas of life like work, health and mobility – that is the topic of “Society 5.0,” the short study carried out by Capgemini and Prognos.

Which challenges will we face in the areas of work, mobility, migration and integration as well as health and old age during the next 10 to 15 years – specifically under the influence of digitalisation? And how can digitalisation be shaped to cope with these challenges?

The short study “Society 5.0” conducted by Capgemini and Prognos gives answers to these questions. It was presented and discussed at the “Digitaler Staat 2018” congress on Tuesday 20th March 2018.

One outcome of the study: The implications of digitalisation, e.g., on the job market, will be considerable. Digitalisation does not necessarily create less work but different kinds of work. In combination with other influencing factors—globalisation, demography and climate change—digitalisation shapes and accelerates economic and societal change. Technological achievements, especially within the field of information and communication technology, are producing the preconditions for digital transformation as well as boosting global economic, societal and political networking, referred to as globalisation.
