Luca Antonazzo

Research Associate

Glamorgan Building


I’m a Research Associate working on the Erasmus+ project ESSA – Blueprint “New Skills Agenda Steel”: Industry-driven sustainable European Steel Skills Agenda and Strategy.

My main areas of interest are in sociology of work and organisations, social resilience and sustainable economics. In particular, I’m concerned with the following themes of research:

  • social resilience
  • labour market trends
  • innovation and entrepreneurship
  • skills formation
  • economic and workplace democracy
  • industry 4.0

My theoretical approach is mainly informed by new institutionalism, analytical sociology, social constructionism and strategic action fields theory.
