Centres

A centre is a more or less formal organisation of various actors from various organisations, working in relatively limited field. A centre is often set up to strengthen the development in an area of mutual interest to the parties.

Centre for Digitalisation

The Centre for Digitalisation is an interdisciplinary collaboration platform that has the role of promoting research and education in the field of digitalisation and the university's core areas. The centre is characterised by broad competencies in digitalisation, participation, and innovation capacity. We develop and provide knowledge for students, research groups, individual researchers, and, not least, those active in business and public settings.

The centre develops R&D projects and training programmes; it also contributes to the creation of new research projects, educational programmes, and courses. These, in turn, contribute to the creation of innovative methods, models, and artefacts.

The Centre for Digitalisation also works to collect, create, and communicate new knowledge to researchers, students, and actors in the business and public sector.
