Panel on "From a political advisor to a politician"
Martin Kocher was Professor of Behavioral Economics at the University of Vienna and Director of the Institute for Advances Studies (IHS) Vienna before he was appointed Federal Minister of Labor in the Austrian Federal Government in early 2021. In his keynote speech and the subsequent discussion, he will report on the experiences of his change of perspective: from economic policy advisor to politician during the Corona crisis. Together, we also want to discuss current challenges of the crisis for the labor market and what lessons we can learn from this crisis for labor and skills of the future.
