Nordic Centre for Internet and Society

Bringing together a wide range of disciplines, various methodologies, and diverse viewpoints, we seek to analyse and understand the growing influence of digital technologies on working life and society.

As a think-and-do centre, the Nordic Centre for Internet and Society aims to combine a wide range of disciplines, various methodologies, and diverse viewpoints to analyze and understand the impact of the Internet and digital technologies on working life and society.

Operating within a global community, our goal is to bring together leading researchers and practitioners from Norway, Scandinavia, and the rest of the world to explore the re-invention of work and organizations within a digital, networked, and media-rich environment.

By studying topics at the intersection of Internet and society, where communication, collaboration, and organizational challenges meet, we embrace the opportunity to infuse economic and management research into the growing field of Internet studies. Our work is characterized by its methodological pluralism and we strive to combine rigorous empirical research with a range of cutting-edge conceptual and theoretical approaches.

To further our aim of creating a tight loop between rigorous research, teaching, and practical engagement, we engage in theory building, theory testing, and applying these theories to current developments. This helps us to inform, test, and share our ideas while allowing us to reach entrepreneurs and policy makers, innovators, technologists, and users.

Overall, we search for ways to serve the public interest through our non-partisan expertise, enabling both policymakers and company executives to foster a sustainable digital economy while preparing the next generation for the workplaces of the future.
