The Research Group is interested in the interactions between creative processes, work and processes of economic and social change. In this context, local manifestations of dynamics such as digitalisation, social transformation processes and increasing multilocality of gainful employment are investigated. The Research Group explores creative solutions in dealing with uncertainties in volatile labour markets, asks about the effects of social, organisational and technological innovation processes on spatial developments and examines new forms of translocal entrepreneurial activities. A special focus is placed on the world of work - whereby work covers the entire spectrum from gainful employment to intrinsically motivated creation. The Research Group is interested in novel forms of work in the course of the digitalisation of knowledge and creative work, as well as in dealing with the new forms of uncertainty associated with this. The Research Group develops courses of action for regional innovation and economic policies that explicitly cross territorial borders. The research contributions are predominantly located in economic and social geography.
