A consortium led by Professor Anne Kovalainen has been selected by the Strategic Research Council of the Academy of Finland to participate in the Skilled Employees – Successful Labour Market call.

The SWiPE (Smart Work in Platform Economy) project looks at how global trends bring into society new work processes, technologies as well as skills and qualification requirements. SWiPE will identify how these new trends trigger new types of self-employment, non-standard employee contracting and entrepreneurial forms of work. The aim of the project is to analyse global transformations of work through platforms and technology in order to support and enable renewal in the Finnish economy and society.
