New technologies change the way buy, travel, consume or meet people. But they also change the way we work and produce. The digital revolution is happening. Constant change is nothing new in the history of the economy. Steam engine, electricity, computers – they all had a dramatic impact on the industry. But what is new is the unprecedented pace of the technological change. The quickest to adopt new technologies and business models are the ones who profit the most. That's why I want Europe to be one of the leaders of the 4th industrial revolution. And see our companies and citizens benefit from the opportunities it offers. I want to make a difference.
That's why I work at the European Commission's Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROWTH). I focus on social innovation and supporting grassroots ideas: apart from general policy issues I manage the European Social innovation Competition and the Social Challenges Innovation Platform. I also work on the European industrial policy, coordinating EU efforts to master the new industrial revolution. In this context I also work on the topic of future of work and workplace innovation.
Previously to that, I worked for the Polish public administration. In the Ministry of Economy I dealt with SME and industrial policies.
