We had the honour of moderating a two day conference on the Future of Work in September 2018. It was a high-level EU presidency conference, providing input to policy suggestions on the topic that will be presented at the end of the current rotating EU presidency in 2017.
Questions addressed were among others: how are digitalisation and automation changing the world of work? How to foresee disruptive changes? What could the policy responses be to enable and benefit from the wanted changes and tackle unwanted changes? What private sector innovation and already existing policy solutions could be put into use?
Topics covered were for instance: skill development and talent management in the future workplace, matching future work and worker skills, skills and e-learning for future work, making digital frontrunners lead and e-transforming the economy and the labour market.
There were many interesting speakers:
The conference video is available here. (introductions end at 10:25)
