IRMO is involved as a partner on the international research project “Adaptation of Industrial Relations towards New Forms of Work” financed by the Industrial Relations Program of the European Commission, DG for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion. The project is coordinated by the Institute for Public Policy (IPP) Bucharest and involves five other organisations – IRMO, Centre for Economic Development (CED) Sofia, Research Institute for Labour and Social Affairs (RILSA) Prag, Institute for Public Affairs (IPA) Warsaw and Centre for Research and Policy Making (CRPM) Skopje. Project activities are targeted towards identification of adaptation models for the main stakeholders in industrial relations towards new circumstances on the labour market caused by globalization and technological change. The main objective is to improve the knowledge on the impact of the new forms of work and digitalisation of economy in the new EU member/candidate states on industrial relations in order to advance proposals for adopting the existing institutional and regulatory systems. The intention of this project is to increase the outlooks for constructive confrontation with increasing risks of digitalisation such as: jobless growth, destruction of the medium-skilled jobs, weakening of industrial relations etc.
