DCODE networks launches, offering three PhD positions at UID


A major European research network on the digital transformation of society, DCODE, has launched its PhD programme, opening up 15 PhD positions across Europe.


As the digital transformation of society continues to accelerate, the DCODE research network hopes to contribute to sustainable solutions by exploring and proposing design-driven ecosystems for our digital future. The programme aims to develop future researchers and leaders capable of anticipating and guiding the digital transformation of society.

The PhD researchers appointed will be working in sectors that cut across private and public sectors, and connect domains such as urban mobility, energy sharing, health and care, insurance, banking and digital ethics.

The signature of DCODE is the idea of prototeams. Teams of PhD researchers with different disciplinary backgrounds will be iteratively deployed in different real-world contexts to develop and prototype future design roles and practices.

A programme of training will be provided including core research skills, design research methods, public engagement and communication, participatory leadership, responsible innovation, digital inclusion and literacy, gendered perspectives and legal/policy issues around Artificial Intelligence.

This will be delivered in collaboration with a network of internationally leading companies and organisations including Philips/Design Innovation, RISE/Digital Ethics, AMS/Responsible Urban Digitization, Advance Care Research Center/Legal & General and Centrum Cyfrowe/Communia.
