WP7: Preferences, policy and social innovation

WP7 Leader: OSE
Partners involved: KU Leuven, LISER, IBS, ZSI, UNIPG, ZEW, EKOF

WP7 is a critical part of the research project that aims to bring together knowledge from different sources and integrate it into a coherent whole. The primary objective of WP7 is to merge the information generated from the various research tasks in WPs 3-6 and other relevant sources, both inside and outside the project.

To achieve this, WP7 has six key goals. Firstly, it aims to synthesize the results of the quantitative and qualitative research conducted in WPs 3-6. Secondly, it will review existing and emerging policy fields and identify best practices, including social innovation, that can inform policy recommendations. Thirdly, WP7 will assess the preferences for redistribution among the general public and platform workers to understand the perceptions of different groups on welfare and employment policies. Fourthly, WP7 will explore the long-term impacts of megatrends through a scenario-building exercise with stakeholders. This exercise will help understand the potential effects of the megatrends in the future, and how policy measures can be taken to mitigate them. Fifthly, WP7 will formulate and validate policy conclusions and recommendations based on project research.

Finally, WP7 will explore and propose relevant areas and opportunities for capacity building. This involves identifying training and educational programs that can help policymakers and stakeholders better understand and address the challenges posed by megatrends. Overall, WP7 plays a crucial role in the research project by bringing together knowledge, generating insights, and proposing policy recommendations to address the challenges of the changing world of work.
