The Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) in collaboration with ‘DIKTIO – Network for Reform in Greece and Europe’ are organising an important conference in Athens, titled ‘Greece Forward IV Industrial Revolution – Progressive Policies for a Fair Digital Transition’, which will take place on Thursday, November 8th, 2018.

The conference will be attended by H.E. The President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos, who will deliver a keynote speech.

This year, Greece Forward IV will focus on the 4th industrial revolution, its impact on labour markets, and the opportunities it may bring in terms of innovation and productivity. The conference shall explore the potential avenues for benefitting from artificial intelligence, innovation, robotics and machine-learning as well as the steps necessary to ensure a just and inclusive digital transition. Both the intensity and the extensity of this transition is creating a fundamentally different landscape in terms of how our societies and our states are to innovate, communicate, interact, work and secure privacy.

Therefore, the conference will aim at investigating the ways through which the digital revolution and the technologies underlying this process could be harnessed for the benefit of our economy and society. What can be a winning strategy within the European and Greek contexts, given the opportunities and risks related to artificial intelligence, innovation, security and privacy? How can we ensure the future of work that we want, given all the developments in automation, the digital economy and the emerging labour realities? How to prepare a soft landing for a labour market in transition? Our conference will bring together distinguished personalities from academia, politics, and the business sector to discuss these critical questions with a focus on Europe’s and Greece’s next digital agenda.

This is the fourth iteration of the successful Greece Forward initiative between our two foundations, with the view to providing timely analysis and recommendations for the kind of progressive policies Greece and Europe need to design and implement. ‘Greece Forward I’ focused on the Greek and European economic and political situation, while progressive economic, welfare and political solutions were also proposed. ‘Greece Forward II’ centred on analysing the aspects pertaining to the need for common progressive European and national responses, in terms of shared responsibilities in the management of migration flows, the reception and integration of refugees, and in the security dimension. Finally, ‘Greece Forward III’ focused on all key issues related to the future of cities and their citizens, at a political, social, and economic level.
