VERDI provides an interdisciplinary criteria catalogue for the trustworthiness of highly automated vehicles based on the European fundamental rights and along the lines of seven core areas, adopted from the preceding projects: transparency, privacy, anti-discrimination, autonomy, respect, protection and functionality. These findings will be used to contribute to future standardization and certification processes. It will furthermore develop a reliable assessment of trust on multiple levels in order to support the effective evaluation of future systems

The project "Digital? Sicher!" assumes that digitalisation offers many opportunities and potentials for the Styrian economy. However, there are also a number of digitalisation risks and employees need to build up competencies in order to be able to act safely and responsibly. To ensure that these competencies are built up in good time, a start must be made before the start of a career. On the basis of a requirements analysis of the Styrian economy, local needs and application examples will be collected. On this basis, the project goal is to develop a technological solution for developing cybersecurity and data handling skills of young people - and thus of the employees of the future - in a "playful" way via a learning app and with reference to Styria.

The changing demands on professional competencies, as well as the associated challenges on the labour market, often lead to uncertainty among the (future) labour force and political decision-makers. The development of the online tool Styriamat counteracts this in two ways: on the one hand, it offers a possibility to look at one's competence potentials, on the other hand, it shows career change potentials in general and offers the possibility to test policy measures. With this project, the two largest Styrian research institutions in the field of labour market analysis are making a significant contribution to shaping digitalisation in the labour market.
