Abstract: 
In this article we discuss the futures of work and robotics. We evaluate key future trends in the field of robotics and analyse different scenarios regarding the futures of human beings and work life. Subsequently, we presents a roadmap of robotics, which covers key aspects of industrial and service robotics, discuss technology foresight insights and inter-linkages to robotics, and identify three critical technology roadmaps: (1) the technological future of robotics, (2) digitalization and (3) ICT technologies. Finally, we analyse key challenges of future work life and labor policy in the European Union: economic, social, and political and inform readers about some important strategic projects of the European Union, especially about European robotics strategy.
