Future of work | Cluj Future of Work

Studies and tests methods through which the city can prepare for the challenges that the future will bring to the labor market. In particular, we are focusing on cultural and social aspects: what are the jobs that can be developed in the cultural and creative sectors, what will happen in the sectors with high risk of automation, what will happen in the sectors that already have problems with integration in the labor market?

CLUJ FUTURE OF WORK aims to:

 

  • Facilitate the transition to industry 4.0, offering training and skill development to people currently prepared for jobs facing extinction, as a result of automation;
  • Increase competitiveness and involvement in solving societal needs for the cultural industries of the city (film, design, music, crafts, media, etc.);
  • Understand and propose fundamental changes regarding the organization of work at the city level, by working with the social categories currently excluded from the labor market.
