-
Elisabeth-Herz-Kremenak-Saal
Plenary / Keynote & Panel
english language

Digitalisation and automation are a fact. But are our systems capable of working with these changes? What does the future of work look like? Does the concept of full employment need to be rethought? How can the welfare system be financed in a time of decreasing working hours and shrinking gainful employment?
