Our research deals with adoption, use and impacts of ICT on consumers, companies, and society at large. We use multi-disciplinary approaches and apply theories from a number of reference disciplines, including management, organization sciences, marketing, and economics. Wide range of both qualitative and quantitative methods are used and often triangulated. Research teams and projects are encouraged. Most projects have both national and international partners, and the results of our research are targeted at top tier academic journals.
