The research group "Diginomics" of the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics at the University of Bremen invites you to the kick-off event of the speaker series "Diginomics Research Talks" that will take place in the Kontorhaus Passage in Bremen at 3 pm on October 22, 2019.
The aim of the speaker series is to exchange information with companies and the general public about questions and challenges of digitalization. The participants of the event will gain insights into current research topics and practical solutions from the economic sciences that can be used to master the challenges of digitalization. At the end of each event, there will be an opportunity to talk to the professors of the department in an informal setting and to establish contacts.
After a short introduction of the "Diginomics" research group by Prof. Dr. Lars Hornuf and Prof. Dr. Jörg Freiling, the series of events will open with a topic "Work 4.0" - Social Workplace: The example of the DIGILAB innovation projects”. The DIGILAB innovation project (which was initiated by the Senator for Economic Affairs, Labour and Europe) shows how students examine the question of what constitutes a "Social Workplace" and how to achieve this status using the example of the practice-oriented innovation project "Social Workplace". The innovation project was implemented in cooperation with the BTC AG Oldenburg and the Chair for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Start-Up and Entrepreneurship (LEMEX) of the University of Bremen. Experiences and findings from the project will be presented and reflected in a case study. This will be followed by an open discussion between panel and plenum on the topic "Transdisciplinary research and teaching at the intersection of innovation and digitalization" - with Dr. Yvonne Bauer (speaker for Work 4.0 and Experts in the office of the Senator for Economic Affairs, Labour and Europe of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen), Dr. Martin Holi (Project Manager DIGILAB Innovation Projects; LEMEX University Bremen) and Martin Ehlis (Senior Recruiter BTC AG Oldenburg). The event will conclude with informal networking over refreshments to get to know each other and exchange ideas.
