More information 


The focus of the programme is on understanding digital technologies as the key driver of public and private-sector developments across the world, and how to make sure that digitisation brings about sustainable and green growth and development.

The programme is suitable for those interested in understanding:

  • the heterodox perspectives of economic development processes, i.e. systems of innovation, evolutionary, post-Keynesian and other heterodox perspectives;
  • the dynamics of social and technological innovation and the role of different actors (entrepreneurs, large and small companies, citizens/users, governments) in these dynamics and in steering the directions of innovation;
  • the meaning and management of digital transformations, and its impact on economy, society and government.
