PhDnet@CAIS. Society and digitalization

PhDnet@CAIS brings together doctoral students who are working on the social consequences of digitalization. It offers them a platform to establish contacts across subject boundaries, and to acquire practical skills and to discuss their own experiences.

The research projects cover a range of themes, including: artificial intelligence and ethics, political communication on social media, datafication and journalism, and digital media in education.

The network is aimed primarily at doctoral students in North Rhine-Westphalia, and also supports them beyond the completion of their doctorate. Participants from other federal states are also welcome.
