3rd IZA/HSE Workshop on Skills and Preferences and Labor Market Outcomes in Post-transition and Emerging EconomiesSt. Petersburg, Russia
Most empirical research on skills (cognitive and non-cognitive) and preferences has largely relied on data from high-income, industrialized countries. There is, however, a growing literature that extends this line of research to post-transition and emerging economies, which may be of particular scientific interest because it gives the opportunity to study contexts with a much wider variability of conditions.

The joint Cedefop/OECD symposium on apprenticeship brings together policy makers, practitioners and researchers from around the world to consider new research exploring the next steps for apprenticeship provision. The symposium organisers would welcome contributions on how apprenticeship provision is changing or would need to change in response to external mega trends, such as socio-demographic and socio-economic changes, new technologies and labour market changes, new forms of work organisation, trends in education and training.London, United Kingdom
The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, and to mark the occasion they will be holding a series of events throughout the year where they draw on this experience to consider these big issues and discuss what evidence-based analysis can tell us about how to understand and respond to them. Events in this series will feature expert insight from IFS researchers and key commentators on each topic, and there will be plenty of time for discussion and debate.IZA, Bonn

Call for papers: 'Labour is not a commodity', today: the value of work and its rules between innovation and traditionBergamo, Italy
ADAPT’s International Conference this year is on the topic of “'Labour is not a commodity', today: the value of work and its rules between innovation and tradition". The X international conference on the new Great Transformation of Work is organized in partnership with the ILO and CIELO Laboral Network and under the auspices of the World Employment Confederation (WEC).
Beginning in 2011, Industry 4.0. has since made its entrance into the socio-economic scenario worldwide. This new production paradigm originated in Germany with the purpose of fulfilling a number of objectives in terms of political economy. In just a few years, the Industry 4.0 phenomenon has experienced considerable growth, reflecting a number of social, economic, educational and cultural changes that have affected knowledge generation and dissemination.
Industry 4.0 is a new economic approach that challenges Fordism and rigidly compartmentalized production sectors. This new model features more fluid organization in which both consumers and external factors might play a part. While highly-digitalized processes allow for mass customisation of products, a rethink of the way production is organized, as well as of working and business models, is needed.
We would like to invite you to investigate with us these and other issues during the international conference “Industry 4.0: Triggering Factors and Enabling Skills” which will take place on 1 and 2 December 2017 at the University of Bergamo (Italy). The conference is follow up of other events organized in the last two years by ADAPT and the University of Bergamo, namely “The Great Transformation of Work” (Bergamo, 6-7- November 2015) and “The Future of Work: A Matter of Sustainability” (Bergamo, 10-11 November 2016).
By adopting a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective, the aim of this year’s conference is to examine the pedagogical, contractual, and psychological aspects that might contribute to tackling the challenges posed by the new Industry 4.0 paradigm. These factors might include – though are not limited to – training, skills, knowledge infrastructure, welfare systems, employment protection and industrial relations.
Participation in the conference is free. Those interested should fill out the registration form available at this link.
The conference will be proceeded by a discussion on the great transformation of work involving a number of employment agencies. This event, titled “Agenzie del lavoro, da fornitori di lavoro temporaneo a facilitatori del lavoro 4.0” will be organized by ASSOLAVORO and will take place on 30 November 2017, 10.00 am, at the University of Bergamo. Participation in this event is also free and registration shall be made through this link.
