Our introductory webinar on 5 July provided an opportunity for stakeholders, colleagues and everyone who is interested in the impact of globalisation, technological transformations and demographic change on labour markets in the European Union to get to know our project. Our researchers briefly explained the goals and planned research output of our three-year project.

2:55 – 3:10 Are routine tasks getting old? Job tasks and demographics in Europe (Piotr Lewandowski, IBS)
The twin forces of technological progress and globalisation are changing the nature of work, and driving the shift away from routine work and towards non-routine work. However, they affect younger and older workers differently, contributing to inter- and intra-generational inequality in a surprising way.
