Digital Society belongs to the innovation network Brandbase, so an innovative approach is a natural part of our DNA. Our goal is to develop and share knowledge across the gap between research and the business community, thereby creating sound solutions which benefit society and business life as well as meeting the needs of users. And this is basically what collaboration with our business partners is based on.
We adopt a straightforward approach to collaboration by drawing on each other’s knowledge and expertise, for instance in connection with panel debates, case studies, Master’s thesis projects, hackathons, and the production of guidelines and political memorandums. This approach gives our researchers insight into the challenges facing companies and organisations, and in turn these companies and organisations gain access to a solution-oriented forum for reflection as well as research-based knowledge.
This collaboration involves many different projects, but they are all connected in some way to what we call our three grand challenges.
In order to collaborate with us, organisations and companies only need to have a basic interest in working alongside students and researchers to discuss problems within the scope of our three grand challenges. And they must also have the motivation required to solve these problems.
In other words, companies and organisations are not obliged to invest a certain number of hours in collaboration, and nor does collaboration cost them any money. The most important thing is that they want to collaborate to solve digital problems, and that they supply whatever is needed to achieve this end (sparring, data, information or presentations, for instance).
We match companies in our network with Master’s thesis students who are interested in data- and algorithmic-based media and communication platforms, including the interactions and financial, industrial and organisational shifts that these media and platforms imply.
If your organisation wants to know more about the potentials of a new digital strategy, product, technology or business model, this is a great opportunity to reveal these potentials by asking a Master’s thesis student to do a project with you.
We are interested in hearing any project proposal of yours, and will be happy to discuss it with you.
