My main focus is on the impacts of the newest technologies on organisational and work practice. At TNO, I coordinate the Smart Working-research programme, developing insights on the impacts of robotics and digitization on organisational practices.
Workplace innovation (University of Leuven).
In the press you hear a lot about the platform economy, cobotisation of industry and other new developments in the Dutch economy: most of this research is connected to the work of my team. In the past years, I have been closely following the AI developments in the industrial field.
Smart Working means new practices in organisations and in society, building on smart systems and on smart employees. I see it as a challenge to find this connection. I also believe that workplace innovation is the only way forward to achieve this smart connection. Next to my research work, I also coordinated over the past four years the European learning network on Workplace Innovation (EUWIN) and in the Board of Scientific Professors for the Technical University of Dortmund (Sozial Forshungstelle).
