iRel – 1st international conference

The Department of Law, Aarhus BSS, is pleased to announce the first conference within the research project i-Rel smarter industrial relations to address new technological challenges in the world of work.

 

The research project investigates the role of social partners and industrial relations in light of digitalization of work, more specifically Platform Work, Industry 4.0 and Smart Work. 15 European universities as well as a number of social partners, DA (Confederation of Danish Employers) and FH – Danish Trade Union Confederation for Denmark, are involved in the project, which runs from 2019 to 2021.

 

The 1st conference marks the coming to an end of the first stage of our research, aimed at collecting and classifying the raw materials in each country on challenges for the social partners and industrial relations system in light of digitalization of work. The conference will be interactive, with presentations of national reports, discussion by scholars, and a roundtable where the stakeholders, i.e. representatives from the social partners at national and European level, as well as government take the floor. The format is interactive, and participants will be encouraged to engage.

 

The conference will be in English and is open to everyone interested. Participation is free, and includes coffee-breaks and lunch. For this reason, your registration is needed (more to follow).

 

 

We particularly want to encourage academics from a broad social science and business background, representatives of social partners and government, as well as practitioners with an interest in labour market regulation and digitalization of work to participate. Certificates of participation will be made available.
