Impact of digitalization on transition pathways
Research Stream 4 addresses the linkage between digitalization and greening of industries.
Digitalization is a pervasive trend in the economy and in society as a whole. Digital technologies affect value chains, innovation processes, and business models. In this research stream, we address the specific question of the linkage between digitalization and greening of industries. We analyze the interplay between digital technologies and sustainability in key industries in Norway and elsewhere in Europe.
A particular focus is on the potential of digital platforms for circular economy and sustainable business models. We also look how digital communication support collaboration between incumbents and new firms.
This research stream is coordinated by Koen Frenken at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
