ECIPE Seminar: The Future of Work and How to Make a Living

March 05 2018
Venue: ECIPE Office, 6th floor, Avenue des Arts 40, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Laurin Sepoetro, Matthias Bauer
Time: 15:30

We invite you to join a discussion about new forms of working arrangements and how do these arrangements affect workers, employers and the EU's social welfare systems.

The 9 to 5 workday is a thing of the past as new forms of working arrangements have proliferated across the world, helped massively by new emergent technologies and different social attitudes towards working. But how does this affect workers, employers and the EU’s social welfare systems? Just some of the policy areas relevant to this new era of work are current education and training systems, the surfacing of 5G technology and a lack of IT skills in the workforce; as well as psychology and risk aversion present in the population.

Will non-traditional forms of labour continue to increase? Does it have a positive impact on economies? Is the skills gap for this new type of work growing? Do non-traditional working arrangements positively affect job satisfaction? And lastly, is the changing nature of work exerting pressure on labour regulations, social welfare schemes and political party manifestos?

Programme

Masters students from the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy will present policy briefs on these issues, linking their findings to research conducted in an in-depth report: ‘The Future of Work and Opportunities Arising from Non-Traditional Working Arrangements‘.

The results will be discussed with Laurin Sepoetro, Senior Associate, EU Public Policy at Uber who will present the White Paper on Work and Social Protection in Europe.

The seminar will be hosted and moderated by Dr Matthias Bauer, Senior Economist at ECIPE.
