What does the fourth industrial revolution mean for the work of the modern employee? How does the worker deal with technology and work? Is the fear of mass unemployment justified? Should we distrust new technology? And how can we distinguish fake news about tech­nology and work from what is really going on?

There are no simple answers to these ques­tions. We searched for a paradigm in which we can understand technology, support participation in decision making about its design and deployment, and help steer its use. This paradigm must allow us to move together towards an Industry 5.0, where human creativity and craftsmanship go hand in hand with the speed, productivity and consistency of robots.

We would like to invite you to the closing conference of the Paradigms 4.0 project.

The day consists of two parts. In the morning, there will be a scientific programme in English, aimed at the international academic community. In the afternoon, there will be a Dutch-language programme aimed at the broad group of companies, policymakers, trade unions, and anyone interested in the opportunities and challenges presented by new technologies.
