The rise of robots has been attracted a lot of attention in recent years because of robots’ capacity to boost productivity and to replace and relocate labor, both aspects being at the heart of MICROPROD’s research agenda.
The ‘productivity paradox’ can be summarized by the fact that while European productivity growth is expected to be on the rise, boosted by technological advances, the global integration of firms, the rise of intangible assets, and other factors, the opposite trend is actually being observed in the data, with productivity growth having slowed down dramatically over the course of the past decade.
In collaboration with Science Animated, a scientific communication agency that develops engaging and accessible animations based on complex research, today we have released MICROPROD’s animation video ! This video explains in an easy way what is the current economic context, the need behind this research and the expected impacts. We hope that you enjoy this animation as much as we do
