With its ‘Digital Transformation of the Working World’ interdisciplinary cluster, over the next few years Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts will be investing heavily in researching and implementing interdisciplinary projects focusing on digital change in the world of work, the interplay between technology and management models, and the impact of digitalisation on society and individuals. The topic is being examined from a holistic and interdisciplinary perspective to develop sustainable solutions for industry, society and politics. The cluster incorporates all of the university’s individual schools: Information Technology, Art and Design, Business, Social Work, Engineering and Architecture, and Music.
It will focus on three topic areas: Technologies for the digitalised working world of the future, organisation, leadership and human resource management in future-oriented companies, and sustainable work, careers and social integration. Prof. Christoph Igel, Scientific Director of the DFKI’s EdTec Lab, was recently appointed to the advisory board for the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts’ interdisciplinary cluster. This board is made up of five experts from the worlds of politics, scholarship, business and administration, and will serve as a sounding board to compare work and projects in terms of their content and expertise, and provide evaluation and assessment. The advisory board will also connect the different research projects together.
