Posted by on July 8, 2024  /  0 Comments

The FutureWORKS Asia project is an initiative aimed at fostering high-quality, policy-relevant research on the evolving world of work in Asia, with a particular focus on gender, equity, and inclusion. The project seeks to address critical issues such as advancements in digital technology (particularly AI), climate change, the climate transition, demographic shifts, and globalization. These megatrends are reshaping job markets, disrupting traditional employment patterns, and exacerbating inequalities. Through comprehensive and diverse research approaches, FutureWORKS Asia aims to provide solutions to these pressing challenges.

On 07th of June 2024, the Call for Proposals (CFP) was published, inviting researchers to submit their proposals for this significant opportunity. For more details on the CFP, you can access it here.
