//The projects

In Digital Society School our projects are clustered in trend-related programmes called Tracks: 'Data Driven Transformation' and 'New ways of Organizing Systems'. More info can be found on our website.

/// Track: Data Driven Transformation

The importance of Data in our society is growing. While the number of data initiatives and the amount of data produced increases, the meaning or purpose of this data is not always clear. We see a need to give meaning and purpose to this data. In this Track we will experiment, research and prototype new ways of using data for positive change in society.

/// Track: Digital to Physical

The blend of the digital and physical worlds is changing our society fundamentally. With the rise of a truly digital society, fundamental questions and uncertainties about our future in the physical (or: real) world are raised.

In this track we experiment with physical representation of data, physical presence in digital environments, interaction with smart objects. We focus on issues around trust and privacy in the context of a hyperconnected world. Our research and prototypes aim to have impact on business and society.
