The Hofvijverkring, a group of alumni from Utrecht University, has awarded a grant to PhD candidate Ronja Röttger, who is researching the influence of digitization on the labor market in the context of Future of Work.
The grant was put together by crowdfunding among alumni. With the money, 3000 euros, Ronja Röttger will travel to Boston, where she can participate in seminars and other activities at Boston University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard. There is already collaboration between Utrecht University, MIT and Boston University in the field of its research led by professors Anna Salomons and Maarten Goos, affiliated with the Future of Work hub of Utrecht University. The Hofvijverkring wanted to support Future of Work research and in particular a young, promising researcher within that theme.
