The Symposium

How have the recent societal disruptions transformed the coworking model?
8th December 2022
09:00 am CET

Coworking Symposium is a scholarly conference on coworking and flexible workspaces. Tackling various topics such as developmental aspects in the post-pandemic world, collaborative and networking perspectives, HRM and other contemporary issues, the symposium focuses on the most recent studies and practical developments of coworking and the flexible workspace industry.

Following the successful first and the second edition, the Coworking Symposium 2022 will revolve around the transformation of the coworking model and discuss the future perspectives of the model in the post-pandemic world. While the last symposium had two modules – a scholarly and industry model – the new edition will focus solely on recent studies and findings that are relevant to the field of coworking and flexible office research.

Coworking Symposium is built on a non-profit basis and remains admission free as it is co-financed by Prague University of Economics and Business, and COST Action 18214 'The geography of New Working Spaces and the impact on the periphery', which is funded by the European Union. Due to the pandemic and health-related measures, the onsite attendance will be capped at 80 attendees. However, the symposium will be held in a hybrid mode, meaning that it can be accessed and attended from virtually anywhere in the world.

The symposium has a regular conference part, two workshops and an evening event. Check the programme!
