LEADING IN INNOVATION RESEARCH AND KNOWLEDGE DISSEMINATION

Interdisciplinary research activities constitute an important branch of the CDTM. The interdisciplinary setting builds a fruitful foundation for a variety of research topics, as students, doctoral candidates and professors all bring in their expertise from different fields. In cooperation with various research partners, the CDTM realizes different research projects in the field of digital technology, both privately and publicly and funded.

OUR RESEARCH TOPICS AND APPLICATION AREAS

CDTM engages in a number of publicly funded research projects and initatives related to innovation, entrepreneurship and education. These range from EU-funded educational initiatives to advance innovation in  areas of high future relevance such as health care or food consumption to local initatives that do research at the intersection of digital technology and other economic and social aspects.

Digitalization and Innovation

The focus of our research is how digitalization changes businesses in terms of innovation behaviour, implementation of new technologies and its impact on society. The projects are concentrated around the TIME-sector (telecommunication, information technology, media & entertainment), while setting a focus on applied output and prototype development with an entrepreneurial touch.
