eWork 2002, status report on new ways to work in the knowledge economy, report July 2002

Funded under: FP6-IST


eWork 2002 - Status Report on New Ways to Work in the Knowledge Economy, provides a comprehensive overview of all the changes in working methods made possible by ICT, and provides updates on research, policy and the events it has supported to share experience and promote awareness.
The report was officially launched at the eWork 2002 conference in Paris at the end of September.
The report highlights significant changes in the labour market and the nature of work as the knowledge economy develops, and associates increased ICT-based work with higher rates of job creation, increased participation by women, and the improved quality and higher skills requirements of many jobs.
There is a country by country analysis (including candidate states and also the US and Japan for comparison) of significant developments, and a digest of recent EC-sponsored research.
