International Roundtable on the EV Battery industry and its implications for the Future of Work / Keynote / 01/2023 / K. Dziczek / T. Pardi / M. Alochet / T. Klier

There are more than 300 new gigafactories in the pipeline for the next ten years for a total forecast capacity of more than 8 Terawatt hours, roughly equivalent to 800,000 new direct jobs. In less than a decade, the EV battery industry will replace the conventional powertrain industry as one of the main employer of the automotive sector.

The purpose of this international roundtable is to start a collective discussion within the Gerpisa international network on the consequences of this dramatic transformation of the automotive sector for the future of work and employment.

The roundtable is chaired by Thomas Klier, Senior Economist and Economic Advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
The participants are:

Kristin Dziczek, policy advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
Boy Lüthje, professor at the Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou (SYSU)
Marc Alochet, associated researcher at the Ecole Polytechnique (CRG)
Tommaso Pardi, director of Gerpisa and senior researcher at the CNRS


International Monthly Seminar / 12/2022 / Stephen Bouquin / When lean production hits the wall: changing conditions of profitability for the automotive industry

Speaker: Stephen Bouquin, Centre Pierre Naville
For the automotive industry, the last decade was synonym of growing challenges of all kinds. From hardening normative frameworks regarding pollution to technological innovation (industry 4.0, digitization, electrification) as well as structural shifts in demand for new (and used) cars. Of course, not all firms where confronted in the same way to these challenges. Still, our main hypothesis is that these challenges became so important that lean production reached its limits and won’t be able to sustain profitability in a sufficient way without a sharp reduction of labor costs and a deep internal reorganization of capital itself.

International Monthly Seminar / 10/2022 / Son Ray, ICRIER, India / Global Value Chains from Autos and EVs: Experience of India

Saon Ray, ICRIER, India
Lorenza Monaco, GERPISA, ENS Paris-Saclay, IDHES

Global value chains (GVCs) are fraught with the phenomenon of fragmentation and dispersion of production across the world. India presents a unique example with its high potential in manufacturing capability but low integration in GVCs. In the book Global Value Chains and Missing Links: Cases from Indian Industry we examined the reasons why India has failed to integrate within GVCs so far and looked at key examples to understand the impediments in this process.
