Research interest

Björn's research interest lies in science and technology studies (STS), in particular the dynamics of innovation processes, digital transformation and emerging technologies. His current research predominantly draws on qualitative and ethnographic methods to explore the practices of  technology development in corporate organisations and their linkages to envisioned future markets. Previously he has been working in the project BCONNECT@Home, investigating how technologies can best match the lived realities and evolving needs of older users. Amongst others, Björn is also a member of the Socio-Gerontechnology Research Network.
