Organized with the financial support of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the workshop aims at fostering a German-Italian dialogue on the topic of platform capitalism and digital labour markets with a specific focus on new professions, high-skilled self-employed, project-based work and intermediated work in the service sector. The workshop is an opportunity especially for younger researchers to present their research projects and receive support from more experienced researchers. Moreover, it aims at increasing public awareness about the new challenges that the development of digital economy implies.

As of today, empirical research somewhat lags behind the public attention devoted to these issues. Open questions on the extent, nature, regulation as well as on the employment and social impact of these phenomena call for research and discussion from both an academic and socio-political perspective.
The ongoing debate on the effects of the digital economy on work and life, political economies and social structure attracts attention from a broad range of disciplines, such as political sciences, sociology, economy, management studies and labour law and thus allows for mutual benefit from a variety of approaches and contributions. Although comparative perspectives have a long tradition in labour studies, most of the current research on the topic fails to do so. This workshop therefore adopts an interdisciplinary and comparative approach and involves both senior and young researchers (doctoral students and post-doc fellows) and practitioners from different countries, aiming at knowledge exchange, networking and developing common research projects.
