Welcome to Joy at Work in Lund, 20-23 August 2017!

The conference for a creative and sustainable working life!

Joy at Work takes on the work environment of the future. It is a conference intended for people involved in work environment issues from different roles and perspectives.

How do we handle the challenges and opportunities of digitalization, integration and the coming generation shift? How do we create a health-promoting and competitive work environment? What can we do to encourage creativity on the job? And who is responsible for what? The questions are many and during the conference we connect research, practice, trends and new conditions that can make the workplace a source of knowledge, inspiration, health and joy.

Find out about the latest research and listen to inspiring and creative keynote speakers who address the themes of conference from the perspectives of innovation, current work environments and VR technology.

Joy at Work is organised by the Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology Division at the Department of Design Sciences, Lund University’s Faculty of Engineering (LTH) in association with the Ergonomics and Human Factors Society of Sweden (EHSS).

The venue for Joy at Work is the Ingvar Kamprad Designcentrum (IKDC) with direct access to the research laboratories, prototype workshops and the School of Industrial Design. IKDC is geographically situated on the border between Lund University and IDEON Science Park. Lund is beautiful in August, and the University is also celebrating its 350th anniversary with grandeur. In addition to a variety of exhibits, you will also experience the feeling of a classic university at the conference dinner in the heart of Lund in the AF Castle with all its fine, old traditions.
