Digital Change and New Forms of Work in Germany and Austria
The project "Digital Change and New Forms of Work in Germany and Austria" explores the effects of digitisation and automation on employment and the labour market, which are currently the subject of a controversial international debate. Digitalization and the so called Industry 4.0 open up new forms of work, such as flexible working in terms of location and time, which also require innovative or changed management skills.
The dissemination of digitally enabled new forms of work, such as click- and crowd working, is currently only beginning to emerge and should become more tangible through the collection of empirical and theoretical findings from Germany and Austria (LINK GERMAN ONLY). The opportunities and potentials of these new forms of work, which are opened by digitisation and industry 4.0, are linked to design requirements at company and welfare state level, which have yet to be explored.
In the cooperation project with the Institute of Labour Studies and Policy (IAA) at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, the empirical and theoretical findings are scientifically prepared.
