Abstract

This paper provides a literature review of the impact of labour market trends on the working arrangements and employment of R&D personnel in the business and industrial sector. Current research positively considers the effects of labour market deregulation, flexibility, and digitalisation over R&D for enhancing business growth and containing labour costs. However, lacking are perspectives that problematise their impact on R&D personnel’s labour and working conditions. This paper argues that research is needed on these important dimensions, to assess their potential consequences over the R&D workforce and R&D activities.

Keywords: R&D personnel; R&D employment; digitalisation; flexibility; deregulation; non-standard work arrangements

JEL Classification: O3, O5, Z22
