Conference Reshaping Work - 24/25 October
The rise of the platform economy has introduced a convenient way to match those in need of services to those who can offer them, and all with a click of a button. The number of so-called 'gig workers' or 'platform workers' is rising. What will the future of work look like?

On the 24 & 25 October 2019, academics, policymakers, business leaders and platform workers will come together to experience the future of work and find ways to shape it. We will convene this group of people during a two-day conference held in Amsterdam. Participants will get the latest insights, not only from policymakers, academics, and business leaders but also from platform workers themselves.

Wendy Günther successfully defended her thesis
On 15 October Wendy Günther successfully defended her thesis titled "Data as Strategic Resources: Studies on How Organizations Explore the Strategic Opportunities of Data".
Wendy obtained her bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Amsterdam in 2012. As she became more interested in the way IT is used within organizations, she decided to pursue the master ICT in Business at Leiden University. Upon completion of this master, she began her academic career as a PhD candidate as part of the KIN Research Group at the Vrije Universiteit in 2014. Wendy’s research focuses on how organizations can successfully leverage data as strategic resources. This includes studying how organizations develop and implement data-driven strategies; how traditional organizations transform into data-driven organizations, and what new roles and responsibilities emerge as organizations try to realize social and economic value from (big) data.
Jovana Karanovic appointed an RSA fellow
Jovana Karanovic, PhD Candidate at KIN Center for Digital Innovation, has recently been appointed an RSA fellow. RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) has been leading the social change for the past 260 years. Jovana joins their 30,000 strong Fellowship to support RSA’s mission and join inspiring change makers.
RSA has had an immense impact on the world over the years, by, for instance, offering rewards for the reduction of smoke emissions (1770), developing one of the world's first public examination systems (1856), and recording the first use of the word 'sustainability' in an environmental context (RSA Journal 1980).

Today RSA’s work focusses on supporting innovation in three major areas: creative learning and development, public services and communities and economy, enterprise and manufacturing. Find out more about RSA: https://www.thersa.org/
