Join us on Tuesday 9 June for a live streamed conversation with European experts on how space can help with working remotely and efficiently.

The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation process. To contain the spread of the virus, governments across Europe decided to keep workers at home.

Those who can work from home have engaged in what can be seen as a large experiment for the remote work system. Digital media platforms have enabled these workers to participate in online meetings and discussions, and to collaborate using shared resources.

Guests will reflect on new working approaches, working efficiently, balancing work with family and social life, lessons learned so far from the COVID-19 lockdown and how space can support smart working solutions.

“Working Remotely, Working Efficiently” will take place at 15:30 CEST on 9 June. Watch live on ESA Web TV:

Guests include:

  • Oystein Fjeldstad, Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at the BI Norwegian Business School
  • Andrea Oliva, Head of Human Resources (Marketing and Commercial) at Ferrari
