Digitalization and Scientific Value Creation

Research Group 11

The research group investigates the relationship between digitalization and the social impact of academic research. Digitalization is understood as a change in the research and publication processes, with the proviso that the benefits of research are increased.

The research group would like to support the other groups of the Weizenbaum Institute in structuring their research and publication processes and to design an IT-supported research environment tailored to the users. In this way, the Weizenbaum Institute will self-reflexively analyze its own research and publication practice and provide the research community (and the public) a research data infrastructure and other tools.
