03: Inequality and resilience in the digital economy

-
7
Breakout

The current technological changes (digitization, industry 4.0, Internet of Things) are taking place against the backdrop of inequalities in income distribution, which have grown significantly in recent decades. Also, companies, regions and societies show very different developments and face great challenges in terms of participation in technological change and its benefits, resulting from global economic imbalances and different capacities of societies to deal with this change. In recent years, these phenomena have therefore become the subject of intense political debates and scientific efforts to better understand these developments. The topic will be discussed by national and international experts both from academia, business as well as policy.
