About the organisation:
Realising the growing interest among the academic and scientific communities in the changing scenario of globalization and internationalisation of science, the German government, in support of the Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt – AA), has set up the German Centres for Research and Innovation – Deutsches Wissenschafts- und Innovationshaus – DWIH – in five countries around the world.
These are a network of German research organisations, universities and research-based companies which provide a joint platform for German Innovation leaders to showcase German research and connect with local cooperation partners.
The German Centre for Research and Innovation – DWIH New Delhi was inaugurated in October 2012 and is a consortium of 15 German organisations comprising funding organisations, research centres and universities.
The main objective of DWIH New Delhi is to promote the German research landscape in India, enhance existing research cooperation and strengthen ties between Indian and German academic and scientific communities.
Date of the symposium: 19th and 20th March 2019.
Venue of the symposium: India Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
About the symposium:
Driven by technological developments, but also by social, economic and cultural shifts, the world of work is evolving. With an aim to encourage an exchange of views, to deepen our understanding of the issues and to start deliberating on possible responses to the changing world of work, the DWIH symposium “Future of Work” will bring together eminent Indian and German academicians, scientists, researchers, policymakers, representatives of international organisations.
As the labour markets change, so will the workplaces and working environments of the future. Reorganized structures of working and technological tools such as teleconferencing, remote-working etc. have the potential of empowering individuals and of unleashing creative energies.
However, they may also have adverse psychological and social effects. An important challenge of the future will be to find equitable, healthy and safe ways of developing workspaces.
Shifting trends towards increasing dependency on technology and automation will have tangible and intangible effects on business, economy, society and individuals.
In order, to help us understand them, we need to reject facile generalizations, but must look at the complex realities and consider topics from migration via data-privacy and security to social equality.
With an aim to encourage an exchange of views, to deepen our understanding of the issues and to start deliberating on possible responses to the changing world of work, the DWIH symposium “Future of Work” will bring together eminent Indian and German academicians, scientists, researchers, policymakers, representatives of international organisations. The event will be structured around five broad themes.
