Workplace Innovation in the Digital Age

Practice, Policy and Research

Virtual Conference: 25th – 27th November 2020

New speakers confirmed! Please see each day below. More to follow soon!

‘Industry 4.0’ promises to transform productivity, remove waste, eliminate repetitive work and enhance capacity for innovation through the rational organisation of production and service delivery. Yet research evidence and practical experience alike suggest that improvements in business performance will be achieved mainly through enhancing human labour through digital assistance rather than replacing it.  In short, organisations are unlikely to achieve a full return on investment unless technological innovation and workplace innovation are considered together. By empowering employees to use and develop their full range of competencies and creative potential, workplace innovation achieves high performance simultaneously with a fully engaged and healthy workforce, creating an organisational culture in which digital technologies are embraced and their benefits maximised through the best possible synergies with human potential.

EUWIN and Beyond 4.0 invite business representatives, policymakers, social partners, and researchers to participate in this free Virtual Conference, designed to share emerging trends and debate effective strategies for digital and workplace transformation. The Conference comprises three two-hour events spread over three days, each including four short presentations and a facilitated discussion.
