Apply for the Norwegian research school on digitalization, culture and society (DIGIT)

CEDIC is the host for a new national research school.

The Norwegian Research School on Digitalization, Culture and Society (DIGIT) will accept twenty top qualified PhD students and postdoctoral fellows each year until 2029. The first class of young experts will be enrolled autumn 2022.

Digitalization has emerged as a key issue for contemporary knowledge societies. However, the scientific communities in Norway conducting social and cultural studies of digital technology are fragmented. DIGIT represents the first Norwegian research school aiming to overcome this fragmentation by fostering synergies between seven Norwegian universities, one research institute and six partners outside the research sector.

DIGIT offers joint seminars, academic courses, writing workshops, communication and management training, network- and secondment opportunities, providing PhD students and postdoctoral fellows with a platform to conduct innovative investigations into the complex interplay of digital, cultural and social changes.

The academic training is organized in four thematic clusters: Digitalization and working life, Digitalization, security and privacy, Digitalization, service provision and public administration, and Digitalization, governance and democracy.

Thematic clusters

These thematic clusters form the foundation of DIGIT's two-year programme: 

DIGIT will accept twenty top qualified PhD students and postdoctoral fellows each year until 2029. The first class will be enrolled autumn 2022.

Interested in a membership? You can be member of several research schools simultaneously. The school activities will be offered free of charge, but as a member you are expected to attend the joint activities throughout each semester. As a member you are a part of DIGIT for two years, and you will receive a diploma after finishing the school.
