Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei will take part in the International BIBB/IAB/ZEW Conference
The International BIBB/IAB/ZEW Conference is hosted by IAB Nuremberg on September 15-16, 2022.
Prof. Francesco Vona, “Labour in the Low-Carbon Transition (LILT)” FEEM Programme Director, will intervene in the Conference – among other experts – as keynote speaker in the “Task VI: The Digital and Ecological Transformation of the Labour Market”.
Digital technologies can be both labour-saving and labour-augmenting, thereby changing the division of labour between humans and machines. While an increasing range of tasks can be automated, new tasks arise at the same time. This digital transformation is likely to interact with the ecological transformation towards a climate-friendly economy, both of which will shape the future of work. On top of that, the Covid-19 pandemic induced fast changes in the organisation and location of work.
The aim of this conference is to bring together economists, sociologists and researchers from related fields to discuss frontier research on labour market effects of processes associated with the digital and ecological transformation.
