Building partnerships on the Future of Work

Project background

This project funded by the European Union aims to contribute to shaping the future world of work in compliance with the ILO Centenary Declaration on the Future of Work, taking into account the interest of EU citizens, societies and economies. It does so by promoting a global approach to the changing world of work, by protecting citizens and by finding workable and sustainable solutions to key challenges related to the changing nature of work.

The project is implemented in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre, the European Commission's science and knowledge service, and it pursues two specific objectives:
  • Fact-based Analysis: Develop new evidence around some specific, and understudied, future of work themes focusing on aspects of relevance to the EU and selected non-EU countries;
  • Strategic Alliances: Build or reinforce strategic alliances involving the EU, key international and multilateral actors, non-EU countries, and social partners linked to the future of work.

    • The effects of automation and their gender dimensions

    • New labour market transition patterns

    • Global shifts in employment structures in EU and non-EU countries

  2. Strategic alliances

    Strategic alliances

    This component aims at promoting to EU and non-EU partner countries the knowledge created under the research activities and linked to other areas of interest linked to the future of work.

    The actions will aim at both:

    • Strengthen the capacity of EU and non-EU countries regarding certain future-of-work-related issues 

    • Build and strengthen partnerships with non-EU countries to foster a debate on certain aspects of the future of work
