ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Social Sciences


Emerging technologies, human behaviour and productivity Cluster

This thematic cluster incorporates multidisciplinary themes revolving around the relationship between emerging technologies and economic and social behaviours. In the training pathway this cluster will include the study of the role of these emerging technologies in securing improved productivity and sustainable economic growth. Yet new technologies, including communication technologies can also carry perceived threats to both society and individuals. Emergent technologies are indeed changing the nature of society, as well as the nature of economic and social interactions. Research themes in this cluster and supervision of doctoral students will therefore also focus on the challenges posed by new technologies and their likely huge impacts.
