The Digital Transformation Research Group

New Research Group launched at AMBS: Research into the transformative potential of digital technologies

The Digital Transformation Research Group is a cross-division research group based in Alliance Manchester Business School with links to other Schools across The University of Manchester.

The group’s research concentrates around research themes that are driven by the transformative potential of digital technologies including mobile apps and digital platforms, artificial intelligence systems, blockchain and new financial technologies, the Internet of Things, cloud infrastructures and many more.

The focus on the transformative potential of digital technologies is aligned with the University of Manchester’s Digital Futures initiative to engage in emerging research areas and to support Greater Manchester's ambitions to become a leading digital city. 

The Digital Transformation Research Group has direct links with some of the key digital initiatives across The University of Manchester, including Fintech and our Data Visualisation Observatory.
