Bavaria’s industrial labour market in transformation

By 2030, there will be profound changes in Bavaria’s industrial labour market due to the ongoing processes of decarbonisation and digitalisation. As a result, industrial companies face an inevitable transformation of their products and processes, which requires a change in the activities and skills of their employees.

The study ‘Bavaria’s industrial labour market in transformation – Measures to surmount decarbonisation and digitalisation in Bavaria until 2030’ commissioned by the BayernSPD parliamentary group focuses on the question of which additional state policy measures can support the Bavarian industry until 2030 to take advantage of the opportunities of the transformation and to master its challenges at the prevailing high level of employment.

Feasibility Study “Mobility as a Public Service (MaaPS)”

DIW Econ conducted the feasibility study “Mobility as a Public Service (MaaPS)” from July 2020 to April 2021. The study aims to gauge the potential of micro-mobility data for public administration and develop concrete technical solutions for the efficient use of the data by local authorities. The “MaaPS” project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure with around 100,000 euros as part of the mFUND innovation initiative.

The project evaluated data from a micro-mobility provider on the use of electric pedal scooters in Berlin and Munich. Accompanying the evaluation of the data and the development of administrative recommendations for action, a dialogue took place with the Berlin and Munich authorities. The technical and administrative requirements for the implementation of a suitable process for data exchange between micro-mobility providers and municipalities were examined.

The study recommends aggregating micro-mobility data using the hexagonal spatial reference H3 and implementing a central competence or research data centre for micro-mobility data that could efficiently direct the exchange between providers and cities. “MaaPS lays the foundation for a standardised exchange of data between cities and micro-mobility providers in Germany,” states DIW Econ project manager Maximilian Priem.
