Organisation profile

The Digital Platforms and Data research group organizes and coordinates research activities related to digital platforms and digital data and to their roles, functions, and impact on digital society.

From sociological, social science, and humanistic points of departure, the members of the Digital Platforms and Data research group explore pertinent questions about how individuals, groups, and organizations engage with digital platforms and digital data, and how practices, policies, and people structure and are structured by them. Even though these questions relate to different domains for the different members of the research group, they all build upon the shared understanding that digital platforms and the ubiquitous availability of digital data create opportunities and challenges for participation, reshape markets and business models, drive innovation, distribute information and knowledge, and constitute indispensable implements for navigating modern life. The heterogeneity is reflected in the empirical areas found in the research group, which include (but are not limited to) platform economies, social media and networks, civic engagement, political communication, datafication, regulation, and the uses of digital technology.
