Reshaping Work in the Platform Economy

19Oct2017 20Oct2017


The conference Reshaping Work in the Platform Economy, organised by the University of Amsterdam and ShareNL, will take place from 19-20 October at Amsterdam University College. The purpose of the conference is to bring academics, business leaders and policy makers together to debate and find ways to shape the future of work.

Addressing the changing nature of employment

Employment is changing dramatically. The rise of the platform economy has introduced a convenient way to match those in need of services to those who can offer them, and all with a click of a button. The number of so called 'gig workers' or 'platform workers' is rising. Therefore, we wonder, what will the future of work look like?

ShareNL, together with the University of Amsterdam, will convene a group of stakeholders during a two-day interactive conference in Amsterdam. This is set to be the first international, multidisciplinary and thought leadership event in Europe to redesign work in the platform economy. Participants will get the latest insights from policy, academia and business, and they will also get to experience the platform economy first-hand.
