Research agenda

Multidisciplinary & practically driven research

Examination of research questions in practice

Together with the digital companies in the Northern Netherlands we are examining which research questions the digital sector has, so that we can arrive at a joint research agenda, based on which we can subsequently develop a roadmap for research to be conducted within the UG and the Northern online companies. Think, for example, of research into the digital readiness of companies. In addition, PhD programmes will be initiated and a Professor by Special Appointment specialized in Digital Business has been appointed.
