Research & Impact

The pace of digital technology’s evolution is disrupting the foundations of businesses and entire industries with a dramatic impact on economic, social, and environmental sustainability. In this theme, we explore and analyse digital enablement and sustainability on three analytical levels: industry, business organizations, and employees.
