The Future of Work congress, to be held in Zurich on the 4 May 2016, will focus on the need for social innovation at a time of rapid technological change, which is already generating massive disruption in the job market. Basic income features prominently in the conference programme, with its central role in questions around the future of the welfare state, the impacts of large-scale computerization and the overall model of work in the near future.

This event will happen at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute, with sessions conducted in English and German. It is supported by the Roosevelt Institute, CATO Institute, the Institute for New Economic Thinking, the RSA, first world development and the Institute for the Future.

The conference will feature many pre-eminent speakers from civil society, politics, academia and business, including Guy Standing, Bruno Frey, Yanis Varoufakis, Enno Schmidt and Natalie Foster.
