The Social Situation Monitor (SSM) team invited policy-makers and researchers to discuss The Future of Work on 10 November, at The Square Meeting Centre, in Brussels.

The world of work is going through a revolution. But how will this revolution affect our economy and society? Some say that digitisation, artificial intelligence and robots will create more and better jobs, prosperity and more convenient services. Others argue that it will only benefit highly skilled workers, larger businesses and more affluent consumers. 

The SSM team invited policy-makers and researchers to join their panel, consider the evidence and discuss its implications.
