These updates are republished press releases and communications from members of the Science|Business Network

The Junior Researcher LAB on Digital and Sustainable Transformation project brings together well-known German and Estonian institutions and scientists to discuss future research and exchange activities with young researchers (PhD students, junior researchers, and postdoctoral researchers).

The project coordinators, TalTech's Department of Business Administration Prof . Wolfgang Gerstlberger and Adjunct Prof. Gunnar Prause, highlighted,

"The ongoing sustainable transformation is changing the economy and is related to multiple digital and sustainable challenges. To boost interdisciplinary and international young researchers’ collaboration, the aim of the project is to investigate these and related topics in the form of both conceptual and empirical papers, highlighting policy and managerial recommendations. We will see at the end of 2024 what will come out of it."

The June 7th, 2024 lab brought more than 30 interested PhD and postdoctoral researchers from all over the world to TalTech Mektory. These researchers, whose interests intersect with the proposed themes of sustainability, digitalization, and the business sector, were ready to invest a significant part of their summer working on the publication texts. The editorial board (W. Gerstlberger, G. Prause, M. Herzog, U. Norbisrath, H. Kitzmann, M. Robischon, T. Hoffmann) will support the process through supervision, feedback, and assistance.

Special thanks to the Baltic-German University Liaison Office, supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funds from the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany, for their support.
