Memorandum of Understanding for the implementation of the COST Action “Work inequalities in later life redefined by digitalization” (DIGI-net) CA21107.

The main aim and objective of the Action is to overcome critical gaps in conceptual innovation on the influence of digitalisation on work inequalities in later life, in order to address the research-policy disconnect and tackle work inequalities in later life redefined by digitalisation in Europe.

Expected deliverables include:

a) the creation of a web-site; that will act as a platform for the Action and become an international ‘hub’ for the study of ageing at work in the era of digitalization, by sharing and publishing knowledge, connecting researchers, stakeholders and activists in the field;

b) the creation of a depository database of scientific measures and tools for the assessment of inequalities and challenges of aging and digitalization, as well as for good practices. Policy reports will be posted in order to make links outside the research community to address policy makers and stakeholders;

c) the facilitation of research and dissemination events, including Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) and scientific Training Schools (TS) for Young Researchers and Innovators (YRIs) and established researchers, public conferences and policy workshops hosting experts and relevant stakeholders;

d) a series of publications including scientific reports, conference proceedings, academic publications, collaborative recommendation papers derived from Action Working Groups, and an edited book.
