“New forms of education, labour and social security”, the last international seminar of the EFESE project was held in Athens on April 24 2017.

The final international seminar of the EFESE project on “New Forms of Education, Work and Social Security”, was organized in Athens, Greece on April 24th, 2017. 

The aim of the event was the interaction between labour markets and social security systems. The event aimed to address a two-fold question: on the one hand, how does the social security system need to reinvent itself to respond to new forms of labour and accommodate new evolutions? And secondly, what kind of challenges and opportunities does this entail for social security education and how the EFESE project can contribute to addressing these challenges?

Paul Schoukens, Professor of Social Security Law at KU Leuven and Secretary General of the European Institute of Social Security compared the developments taking place in Europe in relation to new forms of work and reforms of social security systems. Kostas Papadimitriou, Professor of Labor Law at the University of Athens, referred to new forms of work, informal work and challenges for the Greek labour market. Grega Strban, Professor of Social Security Law, University of Ljubljana, examined the individualisation of social security as a reformist trend that could allow for flexibility in relation to labor market changes. Chris Gibbon, Visiting lecturer at the KU Leuven, focused on the impact of digitisation on social security and analyzed whether it is a process improvement or a paradigm shift. Dr. Maria Lucero, researcher at the KU Leuven University, focused on virtual work in higher education. Finally, Christos Morfakidis, Assistant Professor of the Department of Social Administration and Political Science of the Democritus University in Greece, focused on ways in which social security systems need to “reinvent” themselves in order to meet the current challenges.
