Call 25: Winter school ‘Four dimensions of the future of work’

General information

The world of work looks different every day with unprecedented changes in their scale, speed, and depth. Not only have professions and labour markets changed, the very nature of work is changing, placing welfare states, social partners, businesses and individuals under pressure. This event aims to spark innovate dialogues, support research activities, and promote best practices exchange connected to the Future of Work.

The Winter School on ‘Four dimensions of the future of work’ hosted by CEPS, explores the changing nature of work and its effects on the life of individual and in the society. The participants of the Winter School will explore the theme through four different approaches: technological opportunities and risks, equalities and inequalities related to new forms of work, the challenges for social dialogue and collective bargaining as well as the changing skills requirements.

CEPS will provide a comprehensive course on the future of work and related changes and challenges. The speakers and teachers include leading experts in the field, social partners and policy makers. This Winter School is targeted in priority to advanced graduate students, PhD students and researchers. The one-week Winter School is divided into four pillars. Speakers are invited to conduct regular classes, but workshops and a panel debate are also expected.

Prior to the Winter School, in their abstract selected participants will choose their own approach to tackle the question of the future of work focusing in one of its dimensions: (1) social dialogue, (2) skills, (3) worker protection and new forms of work, (4) artificial intelligence.

Depending on the number of application, priority will be given to participants interested in submitting an extended essay (max.5000 words) of their research proposal to be discussed in one of the thematic working sessions.

Preparatory readings will be assigned according to chosen topics and each participant will be requested to read and comment on someone else’s essay.

Important: Exercises will be carried out using participants’ private computers. Participants will be provided with a free copy of the latest public release of CEPS relevant publications.

Participants selected will also have the opportunity to present and discuss their own research project.
