Accent Area Data Driven Economy (DDE)

New digital technologies open up new fields of application and lead to a wealth of data.

We, the Accent Area of Data Driven Economy (DDE), are an association of various professorships across different faculties at JLU aiming to address these challenges and explore the related issues.

The focus is on the following guiding questions:

  • How can the technology-driven diversity and abundance of data be successfully used in economic terms and responsibly for society as a whole?
  • What (new) methods are needed to analyze the data itself and the implemented algorithm?

The research focus of the DDE priority area lies in three fields that are oriented to the data stream outlined in the figure. These include:

  • Customer and User: Individulas and their data
  • Firm: Data-driven business models at the enterprise level
  • Policy and Society: Regulation, labor markets, etc. at the industry or macroeconomic level, political and ethical aspects
