Call for Abstracts

The online conference is in line with the previous Wellbeing at Work Conferences held in Paris (2019), Amsterdam (2016), Copenhagen (2014), Manchester (2012) and Helsinki (2010). The aim is to share current knowledge, best practices and innovations, relating to wellbeing at work, in order to provide a coherent research agenda capturing challenges and changes in the world of work. The inclusion of a broad range of disciplines – psychology, physiology, epidemiology, occupational medicine and more - approaches to wellbeing at work, methods and cultural contexts should provide an engaging programme. We believe that the online format will allow us to offer more diverse content and facilitate the inclusion of a wider audience. The conference research topics are general and well-grounded in the wellbeing at work research tradition. They may, however, reflect current developments and incorporate various aspects of the new and future ways of working.

    - Psychosocial working conditions
