At this event, researchers presented work from the Microprod project. The goal of the project is to contribute to a greater understanding of the challenges brought about in Europe by the fourth industrial revolution and the associated ‘productivity puzzle’ in a context of globalisation and digitisation, and to provide alternative policy options to better address these challenges.
This event was held over two days, across 5 sessions, each presenting aspects of the work.
