Tematica: Human Capital

The technological change that has characterised the last decade is an unprecedented phenomenon in the history of modern man. Automation, sharing economy, machine learning and the spread of blockchain technology are just some of the trends that have changed and will change the world we live in. Governments have the difficult task of creating the conditions for the productive ecosystem and citizens to keep pace with the era of the fourth industrial revolution, without losing competitiveness and ability to innovate.

In this paper, originally conceived as a chapter of the book “Work in the Digital Age” (Neufeind, O’Reilly, Ranft, 2018), Action Institute President Carlotta de Franceschi analyses the Italian situation, presenting a lucid perspective on what has been done so far, but above all on what still needs to be done.
