The first webinar of the H2020 GI-NI project is focused on the outcomes of our conceptual work package. Three results will have been delivered by the date of the webinar: the conceptual background of the project, the policy debates and a first policy brief. In addition, the webinar will discuss the core ideas of the project and the translation into the main concepts. We will organise the webinar as a discussion between the main authors (Ronald Dekker, Hans Christian Garmann Johnsen and Cinzia Alcidi) and the scientific coordinator (Steven Dhondt).

This first conference will emphasize the impact of digitalisation: the skills requirements, the types of work and the quality of work in a 10-20 year perspective.
