Not only industrial production, but also the entire world of work is characterised by an enormous transformational process. In future, every work step, every device and every employee will be connected to each other. The project focuses on the regulatory conditions for the best possible development of the opportunities and risks of digitalisation under the conditions of growing efficiency needs and looming dehumanisation in the digital working world.
Two central research questions arise, particularly with regard to the increasing generation of data of employees and increasingly close cooperation of people and machines:
- How has data protection of the employees changed in light of the GDPR and the German Data Protection Act with regard to public administration?
- What legal challenges arise from the phenomenon of people-machine collaboration in Industry 4.0 (especially for the public sector)?
