Diginomics Research Group

Research Group: „Diginomics – Digitalisierung, Wirtschaft & Gesellschaft"

The Research Group Digitalization is part of the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics at the University of Bremen and investigates timely research questions related to the digitalization of labour, capital, and product markets. Twelve projects study topics related to ethical, socio-political, occupational psychology, economic, and policy relevant research questions with a focus on digital markets. Research questions related to the blockchain, digital finance, artificial intelligence, and platform economics will be investigated. To enable PhD candidates to generate high-quality research output, they will learn innovative methods (e.g. programming self-learning algorithms) and connect them with various applications. Moreover, they will obtain a solid knowledge of state-of-the-art empirical research methods. PhD candidates present their research during an internal colloquium, in which the project leaders participate, as well as at international conferences. Additional resources are available for these purposes. The internal colloquium is complemented by a seminar series, where national and international scholars present their research. The results of the research projects will be published in national and international journals. PhD candidates are expected to finish their doctorate within 3,5 years, and will be supported by additional measures at the faculty and university level.
