Open spaces at EU institutions versus traditional work spaces

Since its existence, the open office spaces are a topic of discussion. It promised the reduction of costs, improvement of team work and communication. But the outbreak of Covid-19 could have changed the matter. The Budgetary Control Committee (CONT) of European Parliament organised the workshop on ‘Open spaces at EU institutions versus traditional work spaces: justification, evolution, evaluation and results’ on 29 October 2020.

The following document consists of the proceedings of the workshop, the briefing on ‘Open Plan Offices – The new ways of working’, biographies of the speakers and the PowerPoint slides of the presentations.
