The research stream “Digital Innovation” at Wi1 looks in depth at the way digitization allows for, drives or hinders innovation. We are especially interested in intangible innovations, like the innovation of services, systems or social settings and the practices, processes and platforms that enable new forms of value creation in these contexts. Typical questions we try to answer are:

  • How will big-data drive new digital service business-models?
  • How can toolkits support new forms of co-creation and personalization?
  • What kinds of tools and platforms are needed to support innovators in the digital age?

We, thus, strive to provide the knowledge and tools needed for leading innovation and transformation.
