WeLaR conference features 17 presentations

Project WeLaR’s midterm conference, “The Effects of Digitalisation, Globalisation, Climate Change, and Demographic Shifts on Labour Markets and Welfare States in the European Union”, provided an opportunity to share our outcomes and engage in discussions with fellow scholars studying labour market trends.

Hosted by HIVA KU-Leuven on 23 May 2024, the conference featured 17 presentations and drew 35 participants from research institutes and universities across Europe.

“It was a busy day full of interesting discussions,” says Laurène Thil of the HIVA-KU Leuven coordination team. “We shared preliminary findings from seven papers we’re working on in Project WeLaR and received helpful suggestions on how to strengthen our work. We also had the opportunity to learn about results from other EU-funded projects, such as Growing Inequality: a novel integration of transformations research – GI-NI and Incoding, and to exchange ideas with our stakeholders”- adds Karolien Lenaerts.

The event started with a keynote from Agnieszka Chłoń-Domińczak (Warsaw School of Economics), “European social citizenship – can it help building resilience in our societies?” followed by four sessions.
