Platform Labor Group

From platforms for self-employed nursing work to challenges of workers when organising themselves in cooperative enterprise. The researchers of the 'Platform Labor Group' focus on these kinds of subjects. Six faculties are represented and every researcher is interested in platform labor in the broadest sense. They share common interest in how this new, technology-mediated form of labor is organised and regulated and what the consequences are for workers and the organisation of work.

Regularly the group gets together to discuss their work or a specific issue with a guest lecturer, such as the proposal for the EU Directive. They also hosted a documentary festival and are currently organising a panel on ‘Working in the Platform Economy’ in which they will discuss working conditions and possible regulations with workers and regulators (e.g., HR representatives).
