Areas to be covered by the programme include the implications of technological change for employment, incomes, and location of activities as well as the potential disruptive consequences for businesses and commerce. The programme will provide insights into innovation and the application of new technologies that have the potential to disrupt economies. Managing your own research activities within guidelines provided by the Principal Investigators you will contribute to wider project planning, including ideas for new research projects; contribute to the design of research materials and make arrangements for data gathering; gather, analyse and present qualitative and/or quantitative data from a variety of sources; undertake comprehensive and systematic literature reviews and write up the results for publication in peer-reviewed journals and/or for presentation at conferences or public meetings; contribute to research publications, book chapters, reviews, policy briefs and white papers.
