The Next Economy

The world is constantly changing. We have to keep up, to keep living in an economy which allows both people and planet, to thrive and prosper. We also need to further improve our education so as to train the next generation of employees, who will have to work in this future economy. Since a few months The Research Platform The Next Economy is working towards two Centers of Expertise focusing on economic, digital and circular transitions.

We are doing research:

  • connecting knowledge of technology, economics and society
  • involving colleagues, students, entrepreneurs
  • improving our education so as to train the next generation of employees

The Research Groups, currently part of The Research Platform The Next Economy, will be part of one of the Centers of Expertise as of January 1st 2020.

 

The two Centers of Expertise:

Mission Zero

Mission Zero aims at an economy running on sustainable energy and renewable raw materials and resources. The use of new raw materials and non-sustainable energy must reach zero. We believe in an integral approach. Therefore we take into account: technological, economic, social and administrative factors.

Research Groups which are connected to the Center of Expertise Mission Zero:

Digital Operations & Finance

The cross-linking of digital data from physical and financial flows in business processes. Digital technologies offer the opportunity to improve the transparency of operational and financial processes and to make the effects of choices clear. We research, build and experiment with secure and reliable infrastructures and systems and with linking operational and financial data. In that way we want to help (networks of) organizations make the transition to become future-proof.

Research Groups which are connected to the Center of Expertise Digital Operations & Finance:

  • New Finance – professor Martijn van der Linden
  • Smart Sensor Systems – professor John Bolte
  • Change Management – professor Jacco van Uden
