Networks – Cooperation between labour experts
The Turku Centre for Labour Studies highlights working life networking as a crucial element of collaboration. Our networks support interaction between the academic world and practical working life.


Our network of labour experts started its operation in 2007, and currently it includes many experts across different disciplines and industries. The network includes representatives from the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, government ministries, the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres), the area of responsibility of occupational safety and health of the Regional State Administrative Agency (AVI) for Southwestern Finland, Kela, and labour market organisations.

We organise research seminars, as well as other events related to important topical working life issues. We also organise an international interdisciplinary conference, WORK, every other year since 2003. The next conference will be held in August 2019 . The topics addressed have included, among others, the improvement of working life quality and productivity, multidisciplinarity, equality, flexicurity, industrial peace, digitalization nowadays and in future working life.
Our aim is to expand our networks and improve the mentoring process in order to reinforce their relevance for working life.
