LabourTech 2021

Industry 4.0 technologies and its impact on the labour market

On February 10, 2021, the European Union’s funded HubIT project will organise its Final e-Conference LABOURTECH 2021 “Industry 4.0 technologies and its impact on the labour market”, the objective of this event is to discuss and understand the consequences of future technologies in our labour market, with special attention to the role of responsible innovation and the perspectives from organisations, employees and the society.

This event is organized with the support of P.PORTO (Instituto Politécnico do Porto)

Technological advances can bring many benefits for our society with significant impact in the way we communicate, work and live. These advances had led us to the fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0, where technologies, such as large-scale machine-to-machine communication (M2M), the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and automation have disrupted the labour market, making us more efficient, more productive and more cost-efficient. But, would these advances make us more dispensable? Would they increase the control over employees’ performance? How will they affect the decision-making process of an organisation?

In LABOURTECH 2021, we will look into the positive and negative impacts of future technologies in the labour market, and the role of responsible innovation in the Industry 4.0. comprising HubIT’s know-how and results acquired by the project during the last 30 months.

For this purpose and in order to ensure a fruitful and insightful discussion, we count with experts on industry 4.0 and technology, social science and responsible innovation, education and policy.

HubIT is a European project funded under Horizon 2020 programme, which objective is to build a Hub that will activate and improve constructive and co-creative interactions between the Social Science & Humanities (SSH) and Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), towards developing and implementing a shared vision of inclusive ICT research and innovation.
