SWiPE – Smart Work in Platform Economy
How do changes in work and the platform economy interact? The contents, forms and the ways of work and entrepreneurship are changing, partly due to processes of globalisation, the emergence of new technologies and new platforms. Changing needs and skills requirements also require change and renewal in education. In addition, the platform economy may offer ways to integrate new migrant groups into labour markets.
The SWiPE – Smart Work in Platform Economy, consortium analyses these phenomena and their shifts as a cooperative and multidisciplinary effort between the Turku School of Economics of the University of Turku, ETLA, the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy and FIOH, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The research consortium is led by Professor Anne Kovalainen at the University of Turku.
