"At the heart of the NYU Future Workforce Global Summit in Berlin is the belief that interdisciplinary dialogue is the key to unlocking the solutions of the future of work. We are excited to bring together a diverse panel of thought leaders, innovators, and visionaries from education, government, industry, and entrepreneurship. Our aim is to engage in a dynamic conversation that addresses the pressing issues of today's workforce development and spans the breadth of disciplines and perspectives."


Gabriella Etmektsoglou, PhD

Professor and Director, NYU Berlin

"To navigate the complexities of our times and be able to design more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive ecosystems, we need to reconnect with the inherent capacity of our brains to imagine, design, and embrace change.
Global mobility, especially of research and innovation, is a key factor in co-creating the future of work.  Hosted in Berlin – a city of activism, entrepreneurialism, and education, that has redefined and reinvented itself many times over, given its dark history – the Future Workforce Global Summit will stimulate crucial and timely conversations about our shared futures."


Benjamin Hary, PhD 

Professor and Director, NYU Tel Aviv 

“This is such an exciting conference. We are thrilled to convene world-class scholars from NYU New York, NYU Tel Aviv, NYU Berlin, and NYU Abu Dhabi, as well as business, technology, and entrepreneurship leaders from the US, Europe, UAE, and Israel to discuss such an important topic.”
