Social Responses to Digitalisation


Digital automation of work brings many uncertainties in employment and social conditions for different groups of the society.

Even if it is important to focus on new technical skills that are required to perform ‘jobs of the future’, there is also a need to look beyond the skill discourse, by addressing such issues as the quality of these new jobs and the social partner contributing to policy-making process.


The following topics are included:

  • Upskilling, reskilling and training
  • Women in STEM 
  • Social rights and protection
  • The voices of the youth
  • Vulnerable groups
  • New ways of organising and collective bargaining
