Turku Centre for Labour Studies


Synergy beyond borders

Current and future challenges and issues related to working life are of concern to many different scientific disciplines. To gain new knowledge, we need collaboration between various research fields. The Turku Centre for Labour Studies, TCLS aims to meet this need and to produce diverse research knowledge to benefit specialists in working life.
The Turku Centre for Labour Studies is a network for multidisciplinary research, education, development and cooperation related to work and working life.
The Centre also networks internationally and organises an international interdisciplinary WORK-conference on research on work and working life, every other year:

The next conference WORK2019 will be held 14-18 August 2019 in Finlandia Hall, Helsinki. WELCOME!

The Turku Centre for Labour Studies was established at the University of Turku in 2011. The Centre is led by Professor Anne Kovalainen. In addition to the University’s faculties and School of Economics, the Centre involves Åbo Akademi, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, and a network of other experts.

The Turku Centre for Labour Studies bases its operation on networks and is currently located at the Turku School of Economics.
