The Data Economy Lab commits itself to producing quality and insightful research into new theories, business practices and new technologies in today’s rapid developing web-based economic and financial context. Particularly, the Lab studies the development of cryptocurrencies and block chain technologies, data capitalization as a new natural resource and business asset, as well as the emerging theories, practices and technologies of the data-driven economy. Within the coming three years, we plan to hire research talents to join the collaborative endeavors to conduct leading-edge research in the data economy, and to deliver social impact, not least by developing our related graduate programs and executive education, in collaborations with our enterprise partners.
