What is the future of key sectors like work, business, trade, health, environment, and what are the countries of Australia and Sweden actually doing about it?
In an era of increasing globalisation and digitalisation, and with similar strengths in education and innovation, both Australia and Sweden are separately developing thriving services sectors – notably in financial services and health. We want to look at how things like the gig economy, digitalisation & automation, corporate sustainability and environmental change are affecting each of the two countries, and what they are doing to prepare for the future.
