CEPS-World Bank Discussion on The Changing Nature of Work in the EU

Technology is rapidly changing the workplace and fears that robots will destroy jobs are dominating the discussion over the future of employment - but is this the reality? Businesses can grow rapidly thanks to digital transformation. Technology allows firms to adopt innovative production techniques, expand into new markets, and help societies flourish. With this comes opportunity, paving the way for new jobs, increased productivity, and effective public services. 

Join CEPS and The World Bank for a high-level discussion on how technology is reshaping the nature of work in the EU today. Panelists will address issues around investing in human capital and enhancing social protections to ensure safeguards for citizens in a new technological age.
