Bo Dahlbom is a professor of information systems at the University of Gothenburg and research director at Sustainable Innovation. In his opening keynote at the Lillehammer Lifelong Learning conference, he will address “The future of Work and Lifelong Learning”. More rapid evolution and diffusion of technology will increase the need for lifelong learning.
