Technology has always played an important role in discussion concerning the change to societies. This is also the case nowadays, when dramatic rhetoric is used to describe the increasing utilisation of information and communication technology as the “digital revolution”. L&R Social Research explores the impacts of increasing digitalisation on various institutions and living areas.

Important areas of interest are:

  • changes to the working world due to increasing of digitalisation
  • gender inequality and digitalisation
  • requirements concerning training and qualification programmes in the context of digitalisation

How are gender inequalities evidenced within the discussion of digitalisation? What impact does the increased usage of digital technologies have on the general working world and on different employee groups? How can educational institutions prepare trainees for this increasing digitalisation in the working world? By applying a constructivist approach and avoiding technological determinism, such questions have already been explored in detail by L&R Social Research.
