SBE's Spearheads Projetcs

More than ever, the social sciences have a crucial role to play in addressing the major challenges we face today as a society. At SBE, we have taken a transdisciplinary approach to addressing these problems through our research by creating the SBE spearheads.  Their goal is to develop new research strongholds and provide knowledge and innovative ways of thinking to the academic community, companies, policy-makers and society.

Three themes: sustainability, digitalisation and globalisation 

We must foster sustainable development to ensure a strong and fair society, not only for the current generation but also for future generations. Another important challenge is how to respond to the digital transformation taking place across the globe. How we respond to the changes caused by digitalisation will have a major impact. Finally, another challenge we face is globalisation. While this has provided us with a wealth of benefits, it also comes with economic and social consequences, which we must learn to navigate and address.
