Digital Innovation for Global Growth Research Center
The digital era presents a great opportunity for governments to redesign the way in which they provide their services to citizens who demand new answers, but it is difficult for governments in emerging and developing countries to tackle the so many barriers that hinder their catching-up process, when managed correctly, partnering with the private sector (PPPs) may become an opportunity. Along with the new GovTech trend, DIGG is an ecosystem where governments collaborate with startups and SMEs that use data intelligence, digital technologies, and innovative methodologies to develop products and services that attempt to tackle public problems.
→ DIGG Conference welcomes research efforts that try to explore and understand related phenomena in the context of emerging and developing countries or between developed and developing countries.
Whether it is demand-pull or technology push, the process of driving technology and know-how from the labs to the markets is of special interest to emerging and developing countries. Latecomers to economic development understand well how scientific research contributes to encouraging innovation, however, challenges such as lacking resources for domestic R&D efforts or low absorptive capacity in their industries, makes the promotion of R&BD collaboration a potential answer to drive global growth between developed and developing countries.
→ DIGG Conference welcomes research that reports on evolving technology commercialization and R&D or technology transfer-based business development in emerging and developing countries or between developed and developing countries.
The new digital & data-driven technological trends are redefining the future of most industries and governments by altering mainly business models, organization, and market dynamics. Many phenomena are yet to be systematically reported and contributions for emerging and developing countries are required to encourage policy development, industrial diversification, and the analysis on how these technologies enable value generation and global growth.
→ DIGG Conference encourages papers that explore the preconditions, use, adoption, challenges, and implications of innovative digital technologies and to explore how the 4th industrial revolution technology-driven services can impact the human quality of life and support sustainability
Digital transformation is not about technology, it's rather a human-centric phenomenon. Thus, to build resilient industrial development social infrastructure, understood as norms, values, culture, capabilities, and competencies need to be developed.
→ DIGG Conference encourages research ideas that intend to contribute on topics regarding the reinforcement of specialized research methodologies, that pursue to develop and adopt new approaches in values, culture, competencies and capacity development to improve the research capacity and human capital in developing and emerging countries.
