CA18214 has co-organized a summer school on Workplace Management (IV edition) with the departments of REC and DASTU (Politecnico di Milano) and Vodafone. Most of the lecturers and organizers of the summer schools are COST members (from Italy, Norway, Hungary, Czech Republic, Finland, UK; Malta and Poland). The participants to the summer school have got a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge on the new working spaces such as coworking spaces and new trends in the local and international contexts. The nature of work has been evolving recently, along with the way working spaces are increasingly used. These dynamics are causing several implications for the design of working space, management and location that need to respond to new challenges. The case study was the Vodafone village which is located in the peripheral neighborhood of Lorenteggio in the CIty of Milan. The participants aknowledged the new needs that Vodafone and its employees developed within the two years of the pandemic. The aim of Vodafone was to provide new workplaces and services to the employees in the company building and in the neighboring districts. The 29 participants planned and designed new workplaces and services for the employees after the pandemic. The summer school assisted 29 participants from at least 10 different countries. Among the participants, there were students (including PhD students), practitioners and researchers who are interested in the ongoing evolution of the workplaces. The two summer schools aimed to strengthen the multidisciplinary approach of the CA18214 and expand the international scope of activities, as well as the networks among academics and stakeholders.

Summer school 2020
The 3rd SUMMER SCHOOL ON WORKPLACE MANAGEMENT 2021 was held via Zoom from July 6 to 24, 2020 (though e-learning and live webinars) and co-organized by the Cost Action CA18214.
By referring to the ‘COST Action CA18214’, in which lecturers and organizers are involved, and by presenting preliminary outcomes of the COST Action CA18214, the participants of the summer school got a comprehensive overview of the current knowledge on the new working spaces such as coworking spaces and new trends in the local and international contexts. The nature of work has been evolving recently, along with the way working spaces are used. This dynamic has major implications for working space design, management and location that need to respond to new challenges. This course assisted students, practitioners and researchers to engage with these ongoing evolutions.
50 Participants (e.g. master students, Phd students, post doc and early careers) were selected amongst 75 candidates. Thanks to the organizers, scientific committes, tutors and lecturers!
