The conference experience dedicated to the working worlds of tomorrow

What does the transformation of work mean for people? How can companies best prepare their employees? And how is each European country reacting to the process of change?

Representatives of European politics, research and business as well as the social partners will be gathering at the World Conference Center in Bonn on 21 and 22 October 2020 to discuss questions like these, share ideas, network with others and learn from each other. 
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) will host the conference. The event is held within the context of the German Presidency of the Council of the European Union (July to December 2020).
Join us and discover exciting topics, a variety of formats and an inspiring programme – at beyondwork2020, the European conference on labour research!
