Industrial Economics and Organization

Digitalisation, globalisation and sustainability have attracted a lot of attention in society as well as in academia. We have reached a point where there is a need for questioning and refining the way we deal with such issues by applying interdisciplinary lenses and unpacking critical concerns.

Research at Industrial Economics and Organization therefore focuses mainly in three research tracks, all critical for future business, management and society:

  • Re-framing digitalisation
  • Re-framing globalization
  • Re-framing sustainability

The research we conduct contributes to develop the way people and resources are coordinated, governed, steered and controlled in organisations, markets and the public sphere, in order to create and capture value.
