FoWnordics: Pillar II - Digitalization of traditional forms of work

This pillar will focus on changes during the last decades in the occupational and job structure in the Nordic countries.

New technology in the form of digitalization and ICT, has been described in terms of robotics enhancing automatization, industrialization 4.0, and platforms facilitating the enrollment of extensive networks of resources.

In this pillar, our purpose is to examine how different approaches to digitalization, penetrating the established production system, affect jobs and occupations in the labour market, work and employment relations, and the strategies of stakeholders (employers, unions and governmental bodies) that are trying to govern this change.


Pillar coordinator

Bertil Rolandsson, Associate Professor, Gothenburg University.
