What will work be like in 2100? What will influence future work conditions? Within the FutureWork project, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and other institutions develop scenarios for future work. On September 17 and 18, 2021, they will present their research results at the public conference “Work of the Day after Tomorrow – Between Science and Fiction.” Moreover, they will discuss relevant issues and the future role of work with the audience. Participation will be free of charge.
