Steven Dhondt (Prof., PhD) has a doctoral degree in social sciences and is currently senior researcher at TNO and visiting professor at the University of Leuven (Belgium). His main focus is on the impacts of the newest technologies on organisational and work practices. He coordinates at TNO the Smart Working-research programme, developing insights on the impacts of robotics and digitization on organisational practices. You can hear in the press a lot about the platform economy, cobotisation of industry and other new developments in the Dutch economy: most of this research is connected to the work of Steven and his team. In the past years, he has been closely following the blockchain developments in the fields of healthcare and education. Smart Working means new practices in organisations and in society, building on smart systems and on smart employees. He sees it as his challenge to find this connection. He also believes that workplace innovation is the only way forward to achieve this smart connection. Next to his research work, he also coordinated over the past four years the European learning network on Workplace Innovation (EUWIN) for the European Commission (DG GROW).
