WORK AND ORGANISATION

Organisations and their actors influence how current and future work is done. In our research, we look at organisations in a double sense, as work organisation and as a social entity. This research area focuses on the transformation of work and employment and its impact on working and living conditions.
Research topics include:

  • Work organisation and working conditions in different sectors and occupational groups
  • Quality of work and employment
  • Digitisation and automation
  • Relocation of production and service processes
  • Project work, inter-company cooperation and value chains
