WG 4 – Securing Germany as a place for mobility, production, battery cell production, primary materials and recycling, training and qualification

The mobility sector, with 10 to 11% of all employment in transport-related sectors, is one of the sectors with the great impact on employment. Digitalisation is leading to a profound structural change in this sector: transport modes such as road, rail, water and air are affected, as are the manufacturing industry and mobility services.

The Working Group 4 “Securing Germany as a place for mobility, production, battery cell production, primary materials and recycling, training and qualification” therefore focuses on sustainably securing Germany as a mobility and production location.

Structure and operation

The WG 4 “Securing Germany as a place for mobility, production, battery cell production, primary materials and recycling, training and qualification” is organised as a social partnership and looks at the effects and requirements of structural change for existing value creation networks. The aim is to formulate concrete recommendations for action for the public sector, the private sector and civil society, especially within the following focus areas:

  • Strategic development of human resources as a framing for analysing and managing employment effects in the production of mobility vehicles/providers, mobility products as well as in providing mobility services. This includes training and (re-) qualification of required skilled workers.
  • Potential and risks for existing and newly emerging value creation networks, with a focus on new technologies such as the “battery ecosystem”. This includes the aspects of raw materials, cell production, assembly and recycling and the topic of semiconductors.
