The Future of Work pioneers

By facilitating the connection of industrial figures with academics and government we are forwarding the development of the Future of Work. This forum advances the conversation and takes the future in to consideration, before it arrives. Pioneers shape the future to make it work, through trial and error, and success. And we know they have a much better capacity to achieve when they are well connected.

We are the lead agency in Germany for collaborating research in The Future of Work. We have the Federal Ministry of Education and Research funding and mandate, Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) backing and alumni, and SAP’s research involvement, so far. All partners are involved from the very top and regularly join us at meetings here and in the US. Our membership is comprehensive and collaborative. We are established, we have begun and we seek to grow.
