04: Demographics and Human Resources as an Opportunity for Innovation

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The impact of demographic developments on human resources is huge, with human resources constituting one of the most important competitive factors in a globalised knowledge society. In order to limit future welfare loss caused by reduced growth, all the involved players have to act. However, demographic change must also be seen as an opportunity and a motor of innovation in society. This working group will deal with these challenges, aiming to identify and assess innovative ways for coping with demographic challenges in order to maintain the economy’s ability for innovation and competitiveness.
