Digitalization of the Individual

In addition to the design of digitisation, an essential guiding question of our research work:

What effects do digital technologies have on people?

The research focus “Digitization of the Individual” summarizes our work, which deals with the fundamental effects of digital technologies on humans. On the one hand, we investigate which factors influence human acceptance and use of digital technologies and what effects digital technologies have on individual attitudes, health and performance of people. On the other hand, we focus on the negative consequences of the use of digital technologies and in particular the question why digital technologies can trigger stress.
