Event description

Description

The composition of the workforce is being changed by the nature of technological progress. By all accounts, new technologies lend themselves to greater specialization and smaller viable business sizes than were characteristic of the industrial age. The rise of the so called “gig economy”, the increasing prevalence of microentrepreneurship, and the upsurge in self-employment all demonstrate the need to rise above business-as-usual. This changing nature of work is an impetus for substantial policy reform in all the various tenets of employment policy, commercial relationships and innovation policy more broadly as these new employment relationships manifest in a new, and to this point unprecedented, commercial landscape.

The event will take place at the Institute on Governance's ASPIRE Lab at 60 George Street in the Byward Market. The reception will begin at 5:30. The panel begins at 6:00 and will end promptly at 7:00. A networking event among attendees and speakers will follow. This instalment of the Policy Crunch series is proudly brought to you by the team behind the IOG's research and advisory services related to innovation policy and the governance of digital technologies. For more, see Science and Innovation Policy at the IOG.

Featuring:

Jeremy Dupow, Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC)
