The Impact of the Regulatory Environment on Digital Automation in Professional Services

This study explores the current state of play in digital automation and the potential for further automation in the near future in four business services sectors: engineering, architectural services, legal, and accounting services.

The study develops a methodology to identify the relevant factors contributing to the observed automation trends in these sectors in different EU countries. The research will focus on the impact of national business and regulatory environments on digital automation.

The study is part of a larger project that E4P is currently doing in partnership with Prometeia and BIP.
