UNTANGLED will host its second Expert Workshop, Data and knowledge sources: how to put the evidence to work? on 21-22 September. The event is dedicated to researchers, policymakers and practitioners working in the fields of globalisation, digitalisation, demographic change and the labour market.
The workshop, organised by UNTANGLED partner ZSI in Vienna, aims to explore how we can improve research on three megatrends – globalisation, digitalisation and demographic changes – and their impact on various aspects of labour. Because one of the purposes of UNTANGLED is to develop scenarios and a framework to orient policies to benefit society, we put great emphasis on collaboration with stakeholders to ensure a variety of perspectives in the research process. The ambition of our workshop is also to reflect on and contribute to the flow of insights and ideas between policy, practice and research.
Researchers will talk about the methods they use and their results, reflecting on the explanatory power, limitations and policy implications of their research. Policymakers and practitioners will share their experience with commissioning and using research for their work.
