Establishing a new National Centre for Creating Healthy Jobs
IER hosted a meeting at the RSA in London in mid-March on its initiative to establish a new National Centre for Creating Healthy Jobs.
The aim of the centre is to minimise the number of jobs that lead to ill-health and increase the number that support good health. The meeting was opened by Dame Carol Black, the former UK Government advisor on work and health. Around sixty participants from universities, government and heath and business organisations attended the meeting. For more details of the Centre, contact Prof. Chris Warhurst: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The discussion focused on the limitations of Industry 4.0 and the opportunities for promoting Industry 5.0. Panel members were Judith Kirton-Darling, Deputy General Secretary of IndustriAll; Erja Sankari, Executive Vice President of COO iLOQ in Finland; Karina Angelieva, former Bulgarian Deputy Minister of Innovation and Growth and of Education; Andrea Glorioso, Policy Officer at DG EMPL in the European Commission; and Liviu Stirbat, Director of the new Industry 5. 0 unit with the European Commission.
