The Nordic Centre for Internet and Society was founded to bring together a wide range of disciplines, methodologies, and viewpoints to analyse and understand the growing influence of digital technologies on working life and society. As an academic think-and-do-centre, we aim to bring together scholars and practitioners from Norway, Scandinavia, and the rest of the world to explore the re-invention of work and organizing in a digital, networked, and media-rich environment. At the same time, it is our ambition to be part of a global community of researchers who study the manifold implications that the Internet and digital communication technologies have on the way we work, interact, and lead our daily lives, with particular interest on the impact of digital technologies on people in the context of work resp. work-like settings. We aim to create a tight loop between rigorous research, teaching, and practical engagement, helping us to inform, test, and share our ideas, while allowing us to reach entrepreneurs and policy makers, innovators and researchers, technologists and users.
