Seminar LU Futura: Digitalisation of working life – challenges and opportunities


This is the first of three seminars arranged by LU Futura, in cooperation with CED, on different aspects of the theme 'Framtidens arbetsliv' (Working life of the future). This initial seminar will address digitalisation and how this will lead to the disappearance of some work tasks and competences, and the introduction of new ones. The invited speakers will also discuss which groups might gain from this process and which could lose out, and whether working life digitalisation could contribute to increasing polarisation and inequality in society.
