Our Research Lab
Launched in 2020, the main aim of the IDEAS Lab is to promote innovative applied research and education to help the public and organizations maximize value, apply responsible technologies, and develop knowledge to serve the economy and society.
We study technology-centered innovation processes in several empirical domains, aiming at increasing our understanding of the dynamics of their emergence and evolution, and help organizations harnessing the digital transformation wave.
The Lab will also provide students and the public with the state-of-the-art knowledge and tools to support the responsible digital and business transformations from a socio-technical perspective. We are a collaboration between two schools at KUC: School of Economics, Innovation and Technology (SEIT) and School of Communication, Leadership and Marketing (SCLM).
We focus on three main areas of research:
Digitalization, digital transformation, and technology innovation focuses on the use of state-of-the-art technological solutions to support society and organizational digital transformation plans, process and product innovation, and meeting sustainability objectives.
Enterprise Systems focuses on the rejuvenating enterprise system applications and process optimization through the use of state-of-the-art technologies to meet sustainability and enterprise automation objectives.
Data Science & Analytics focuses on the use of data science and analytics algorithms and tools for (big) data in order to enhance the data-driven-decision-making processes in public and private organizations, as well as enhance the data reporting capabilities of those organizations.
