Ergonomic Challenges in the New Economy
The world economy is rapidly changing and involves globalisation of production systems and growth of service and knowledge work. The human factors and ergonomics profession are being challenged by new work situations presenting new issues to be dealt with in practice and in research:
- Work Life Balance
- Knowledge Work Between Enthusiasm and Strain
- Project Organised Work
- Collaborative, Distributed Work
- Global Redistribution of Production Systems
Safety and Time Critical Systems
The conference offers a platform for discussing practical experiences and research activities within ergonomic challenges in the new economy as well as other topics.
A back-to-back conferences of ODAM 2014 and NES 2014 is an opportunity for participants to choose among a greater number of technical sessions and workshops. ODAM participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the Nordic approaches, and NES participants will have an opportunity to learn more about the wider international ODAM perspectives.
