This is the 3rd edition of our conference and it is probably the most controversial one. We are going to discuss issues which until yesterday were treated as science fiction.

This year, for the third edition of the conference, we will host some very interesting personalities, with whom we'll discuss, among other things, how artificial intelligence is changing the way companies operate, how the Internet of Things is affecting logistics, who will pay for an ecological lifestyle, and whether we can afford renewable sources of energy? We will also talk about whether the 'improvement' of people will be the greatest achievement of our time, and whether their will be a exodus of foreign workers from Poland in search of better pay in Germany in 2019.

Panel III - The Labour Market. Today and Tomorrow.

Designing people.

Ewa Bartnik
Professor of the Institute of Genetics and Biotechnology

Designing people. “Improvements to humans will in all probability be the largest industry of the 21st century,” Yuval Harari, author of the recently published “Homo Deus,” predicts. Is he correct in his forecasts? How will designing people impact the labour market? What threats may arise from improvements to humans to order by a specific industry? Are we condemned to designing people?

Trends on the Labour Market

Anna Szczeblewska
Partner at PwC

Labour market tendencies. Will the growth in remuneration slow down in 2019? Will foreigners begin moving from Poland to Germany? Will employers face the necessity of competing with each other to employ highly-qualified employees? Will the human resources gap expand? Will the high employment growth rate of 2018 take a downturn?
