RFBerlin Panel Discussion on “The Future of Work” @HU Berlin – 19/10/2023

Dear BeNA Members,

The automation of work processes and breathtaking advances in artificial intelligence affect workers of all skill levels. Digital technologies have created jobs that did not exist 15 years ago. These new technologies will shape the way we work in the future and pose enormous challenges for policymakers, employees, and employers. 

To discuss “The Future of Work,” the ROCKWOOL Foundation Berlin (RFBerlin), in cooperation with Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, invited a panel of some of the world’s leading labor economists. David Autor (MIT), Kerwin K. Charles (Yale), David J. Deming (Harvard), and Ioana Marinescu (University of Pennsylvania) are world-leading experts who will share their views on the future of work. The panel will be chaired by Chris Giles, economics editor of the Financial Times. 

The event will take place on 19 October at 17:00 at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, School of Business and Economics, Spandauer Str.1, Room 201.

There are limited number of places available. If you would like to attend the panel, please register here by Friday, 8 September 2023

We hope to see you at the panel discussion this October!

Best wishes,

Christian Dustmann, Thomas Lemieux and Alexandra Spitz-Oener
