The Internet has long proven its potentials beyond the simple types of
communications it originally was designed for. Today, virtually
everybody and all sectors in society use the Internet and ICTs as
enabling technologies for all kinds of communications, production,
distribution, and innovation of products, services, and business models.
Internet is used as a generic, digital exchange and distribution platform.

These development trends are concerned with the fact that ICTs are
becoming crucial enabling technologies for all other industries and
social sectors of society. Since the 1980s, ICTs have been seen as core
technologies in the current technological paradigm guiding industrial
and social developments. In the first phase of this technological
paradigm, most research and policy focus has been on ICT itself –
technologically, economically, and politically. In the current phase,
more emphasis is on the enabling qualities of ICTs and how this issue
affects technology and market developments, business models, and
policies and regulation.

This year we focus on these development trends and discuss the
potentials and limitations and drivers and barriers of ICTs as enabling
technologies and platforms. PhD students studying new media developments
as well as PhD students examining new market developments and policies
and regulations and PhD students exploring architectural issues in ICT
and new developments of technologies and protocols are highly welcome to
participate in the course. PhDs dealing with following topics (but not
limited to) benefit from participating in the course:

·Over The Top (OTT) media

·OTT voice and messaging

·Information centric networking

·Internet of Things (IoT)

·Smart homes and cities




·Intelligent Transport Systems

·New ICT-based business models and ecosystems

·Network and platform neutrality

The aim of the course is to refine the level of knowledge of the
participating Ph.D. students on the economic and political structures
and mechanisms affecting technology development in the information and
communication technology (ICT) area. It also considers the impact of
implementation and application of ICTs on the economy and broader social
developments. It is a course in the political economy of technology
development with a disciplinary point of departure in economics and
social science. This theme is explored at a company (micro), sectorial
(meso) and/or societal (macro) level. This will depend on the specific
topics chosen in the course. The course targets Ph.D. students with a
technology background combined with an economics and/or social science
approach and students with an economics and /or social science
background focusing on technology development.

Best regards

Reza Tadayoni and Anders Henten
