CBS BiS platforms

The Transformations Platform is one of three new platforms created under the auspices of the CBS Business-in-Society initiative. The BiS platforms focus on cross-disciplinary research, education and outreach in order to address societal challenges. The Transformations Platform, with joint directorship by Mikkel Flyverbom (MSC) and Ioanna Constantiou (Digi), specifically focuses on the implications of digital and other technological developments for economic and societal transformations. The research at the platform explores issues such as organizational transformations in the digital age, transformations of business models, technology and socio-economic transformations, knowledge production and digital transformations, and digital transformations in media and communications.
