Centre of Digital Economy
The digital economy changes how we work, how we compete, how we organise and how we innovate.
At the Centre of Digital Economy (CoDE), we drive forward joint projects in order to leverage the opportunities created by the digital economy to enhance society and enrich human life. We also push the boundaries of knowledge and management practice in the digital economy through our cutting-edge research and our deep engagement with business and government.
To generate insights on the digital economy, we need bold vigorous research from multiple disciplines. Our research sheds light on the social, technological, economic, managerial, organisational, political, and ethical implications of the digital economy.
