    This document presents the results of Digimuutos -project, that aimed to study the impacts of digitalisation on employment and needed competences. In the beginning of the document, the main findings of an already published literature study are presented. The document presents recommendations from four viewpoints: 1) Strengths and goals for Finland, 2) Supporting companies, 3) Ensuring equality, and 4) Human-technology collaboration. Most efficient way to prevent the largely discussed threats of digitalisation is to become a forerunner in effective and innovative utilization of digitalisation, and by making the necessary reforms in all levels of the society. Large part of the document is focused on describing the implementation and experiences of the trial carried out during the project. The trial had three main aims: Firstly, whether improved knowledge about job searching strategies would improve employment. Secondly, whether competences related to digitalisation are linked to chances of getting employed, and thirdly, what kinds of challenges and problems are experienced in a trial that is carried out in the field of the public sector. The trial showed, that the means used in the trial for enhancing job searching knowledge, were not effective in improving employment. Furthermore, several lessons were learned about carrying out trials in the public sector.The trial showed that replicating trial settings developed elsewhere enables assessing cost-efficiently their potential benefits in Finland.
