Future of Work in the Digital Society Conference

February 22, 2018

The increasing importance of Gig economy in the society has attracted significant attention from industry practitioners and academic scholars. Recognizing that the prosperity of the future society will be defined by how we creatively use, deploy, and assimilate digital technologies that enabled the Gig economy and by how the culture is shaped by this paradigm shift and how individuals’ health is affected by this change, the workshop will focus on a number of related, high-impact areas related to the Gig economy.
