Emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital platforms are reshaping the way individuals and organisations work. Although AI systems and platforms promise to significantly determine the future of work, their actual effect from a professional, social, civic, organisational and/or political perspective still remains vague.
To gain in-depth insights into how AI and platforms are changing the way we work, the Reshaping Work 2022 conference combined these two exciting phenomena in a conference that brought multiple stakeholders such as academics, law and policymakers, worker representatives, and technology companies together in a unique location along the Keizersgracht: the Rode Hoed.
For both topics we focused on what impact they will have on the future of work. The conference featured keynote presentations, panel discussions, roundtable sessions, networking boat tour, and many other opportunities for networking and exchanging of ideas.
What better way to enjoy Amsterdam than a scenic boat tour in good company? We are closing the Reshaping Work 2022 Conference by hosting networking drinks on a boat around the city canals. Meet fellow future of work enthusiasts and share the amazing experience of the sunset over the historic Amsterdam canals!
We invite you to a relaxed ambient to enjoy a delicious meal and engage in informal discussions around the platform economy with your fellow conference attendees.
During the networking dinner, each table will be hosted by a representative of a company/organization. You will get a chance to decide with whom you wish to enjoy a delicious meal, while engaging in fruitful discussions.
The use of AI at Work and the rise of the Platform Economy bring together many different stakeholder groups, each with its own dynamic set of interests, goals, perspectives, and approaches. So what does it mean, concretely, to think like these stakeholders?
To learn more about how they position themselves, to see this space of opportunities and challenges through their eyes, and to hear what matters most to them – you are invited to participate in a series of ”Think Like” roundtables led by representatives of different stakeholder groups.
We have accepted a diverse range of abstracts that explore the phenomenon of AI at work or the Platform Economy at the individual, group/team, organisational or societal level. We have included different methodological approaches including papers based on conceptual, qualitative, and quantitative work. Through this diversity, the panellists and posters that have been selected to present at the conference have a practitioner-oriented focus to help bring both academics and practitioners together.
The call for papers is now closed, however, you can click here if you would like to see the formal requirements that the chosen papers had to fulfil.

Think like a Policy Maker – Max Uebe, Head of “Future of Work, Youth Employment” Unit, European Commission
How to deliver on the Commission President’s call to improve working conditions in platform work?
Think like an Insurer – Stefan Kröpfl, Global Head of Life Business Insights & Governance, Zurich Insurance
What are the main drivers for gaps in income protection (e.g., disability, critical illness) and pension savings in new forms of employment? What are the key concerns and the needs of workers in relation to these gaps? Who could / should address this issue? What could / should insurance companies do about it?
If we want to capitalise on the opportunities inherent in platform work, which actors should we rely on for policy action to minimise the risks and ensure a desirable future of platform work? Is their main task to clarify and enforce existing regulation or do we need new, platform-specific rules? Do current labour market actors have the capacity to organise and represent platform workers and identify and defend their interests?
