WE-TRANSFORM 6th Stakeholder Forum Workshop
The EU H2020 project WE-TRANSFORM aims to create an action-oriented policy agenda to prepare for the automation transition and the related transformation of the workforce in the transport sector. To do so, it has established an effective dialogue with all parties involved, including workers and employers across all transport modes.
As part of the final phase of the project, the WE-TRANSFORM consortium cordially invites you to attend the 6th Stakeholder Forum Workshop. Entitled 'POLICY AGENDA FOR WORKERS' TRANSITION IN AUTOMATED AND DIGITAL TRANSPORT SERVICES', it takes place on 27th & 28th September 2023 in Turin, Italy, at the Castello del Valentino, Politecnico di Torino.
- Public regulation and contractual bargaining
- Industrial governance
- Training and reskilling
- Minimisation of labour exclusion and exploitation
The first phase of the project focused on analysing the state-of-the-art and initial stakeholders’ input regarding barriers to digitalization, the negative and positive impacts on workers, and their skills, but also existing initiatives to facilitate the transition.
The project is in its final phase: the formulation of an action-oriented policy agenda. This will define the specific policies related to the main themes key to minimise the impacts of digitalisation and automation on the workers. This workshop comes after the recent event in Vienna. There, we assessed the initial policies outlined in the WE-TRANSFORM analysis of the legal implications (to be published soon). This time, Turin serves as the last meeting for leveraging stakeholders’ knowledge and experiences to co-create and shape the policy agenda.
This workshop is targeted at public authorities and policymakers, workforce organisations, trade unions and workers, and transport operators, across all transport modes. We are also inviting representatives from other sectors forerunners in the digital transition, such as banking or tourism, to join the discussion. Labour lawyers, European law experts, labour economists, strategy managers, HR managers, occupational psychologists, digitalisation technicians, training companies, workers, and professional associations are welcome to participate.
