CSH scientist Ljubica Nedelkoska will give a virtual talk at the PILLARS Conference on Education, Skills, and Worker Retraining.
About PILLARS conference:
The conference brings together researchers from a broad range of economic fields to discuss ongoing research on the future of work. Accepted papers investigate skill requirements in the digital age, the impact of automation and digitization on employment, the transferability of skills after technology-induced displacement, and the relevance of (re-)training and on-the-job learning for skill development on the modern labor market. The papers propose novel ways of measuring skills using unique data from online job vacancies, apprenticeship plans, and worker task surveys. The conference will inform policy-makers how to design education and training policies to help workers to adapt to changing work environments and skill requirements.
