In 2020, the Fairwork project has expanded its research activities to Germany. As set out in this report, the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management (EIM) at the Technical University of Berlin (TUB), together with the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) at the University of Oxford, are now implementing the Fairwork rating scheme in Germany. In collaboration with other research partners, the model is also being operationalised in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Indonesia and the UK. We are particularly grateful for the support of the Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin (WZB) and the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society in implementing Fairwork Germany. Fairwork Germany has been endorsed by Elke Breitenbach, Berlin’s Senator for Integration, Labour and Social Services, and is included in the Federal Government’s Digital Implementation Strategy.
