Forthcoming Event with Sergio Bologna – Freelance work nowadays: what are the challenges for the future?

 

***FORTHCOMING EVENT***

 
Freelances d’aujourd’hui: quels enjeux pour demain?
 
Freelance work nowadays: what are the challenges for the future?
 
If you are in Brussels in September don’t miss the event hosted by SMartBe which will gather international thinkers, activists and experts analysing the mechanisms of independent work, the emergence of new forms of employment in Europe as well as future challenges of the labor market.
 
While the diversity of #freelance work and freelancers is potentially a source of wealth and innovation, it also questions the models and mechanisms of labor and social protection law that have been present in Europe for the last decades.
 
Within this context our author SergioBologna will present his latest book “The Rise of the European Self-Employed Workforce” also exploring what he defines as ‘second-generation independent workers’
