A new Focus Paper on “Industry 5.0 and the future of work. Making Europe the centre of gravity for future good-quality jobs” by ESIR group (European Commission, Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, Directorate RTD — G, Unit G.1 — Common R&I Strategy & Foresight Service) is now available.
The ESIR group has on several occasions supported the aim to promote a systemic industrial transformation that goes beyond the deepening of digital technology in industry, in order to embrace a human-centric, resilient sustainable paradigm. The “Industry 5.0” approach, still far from universally acknowledged, is key for the future of the European economy, and a much-needed step to ensure that industry becomes a protagonist, rather than a passive factor of transformation. In this policy brief, ESIR looks specifically at the intersection between industrial transformation and the future of work. Moreover, the publication explicitly refers to the Millennium Project and the Work/tech scenarios study.
Contributor to the publications is Epaminondas Christophilopoulos, Chair of the Greece Node of the Millennium Project, together with Sandrine Dixson-Declève (Chair), Kirsten Dunlop, Andrea Renda, Céline Charveriat, and Pierre-Alexandre Balland, Darja Isaksson, Francisca Martins, Montserrat Mir Roca, Gitte Pedersen, Sylvia Schwaag Serger, Luc Soete, Špela Stres, Daria Gołębiowska-Tataj, Rainer Walz, Ailin Huang.
