Diginomics Research Talks: Digital Experts Hold Public Talk Series

Work 4.0, digital project management, and digital currency are topics of an event series from the Faculty of Business Studies & Economics. The series begins on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, in the Kontorhaus Passage, is free of charge and open to anyone who is interested.

The “Diginomics – Digitalization, Economy, and Society” (Diginomics – Digitalisierung, Wirtschaft & Gesellschaft) graduate group within the Faculty of Business Studies & Economics is investigating work, finance, and product markets based on the above-stated aspects. “With our event series, we want to start the conversation with the economic sector, politics, and society in Bremen,” says Lars Hornuf, professor of business studies at the University of Bremen. He is the coordinator of the graduate group. “We wish to present current research findings from renowned digital experts in presentations and hope to start an exchange with the interested public.” This is why the events are not being held at the university but in the city, emphasized Hornuf. The first two events will take place at the Kontorhaus Passage and Teerhof.


The Diginomics graduate group is a study and research program in the field of business studies, which prepares participants for acquiring their PhD title. The lunchtime seminar idea came from the wish to make international communication on the topic of digitalization possible. “At lunchtime on Wednesdays, international speakers, for example from the University of Cambridge or from Cleveland, USA, come to us and hold talks. We have found this to be positive,” says Professor Hornuf. This is how the idea was born to create a similar format and to make it accessible for the regional economy and public.
