Interdisciplinary and practice-oriented research on the internet and society
The Munich Center for Internet Research sees itself as an interdisciplinary think tank that connects the different disciplines conducting research on the digitization process. For example, economic, technical, sociological and legal perspectives are brought together to develop a holistic understanding of digitization and suitable solutions for the digitization in the society. Moreover, the institute also acts as a think tank for business and politics. Pressing questions are obtained from practical phenomena and dealt with in a practical sense in order to assist political and societal actors in an advisory role. It’s the aim of the institute to develop a framework that helps to shape the social change due to the process of digitization.
Currently there are five interdisciplinary research projects conducted at the institute:
New organizational and management concepts in digital working environments (business administration + sociology)
Accountability (computer sciences + law)
Media centers of the future (communication science + sociology)
Internet-based technologies and digital business models (business administration + economics)
Project DatSec4App (computer sciences + political sciences)
In the future, further research projects will be identified in a dialogue with major stake-holders and the results will be disseminated to society at large.
