Centre for Inclusive Digital Enterprise @ UC Business School (CeIDE@UC, pronounced “seed”)
Research Group Summary
Vision : empowering the less-included with digital innovation.
CeIDE@UC is a multidisciplinary group focused on the inclusion of the currently less-included segments of the digital economy. The mission of CeIDE is the development of digital strategies that will bring about the transformation of the marginalised within our society that creates equal opportunities for well-being.
CeIDE will particularly reach out to socio-economically disadvantaged segments of society in New Zealand and the region such as the Māori, Pasifika, disabled, elderly, trans-migrant and small-local business communities. Domains of interest include digital health, online education, Fin Tech, smart cities, and digital citizenship.
At its core, CeIDE will develop systems-based narratives that could transform segments within our society to a state where they would be measureably be better off than before.
Another unique characteristic of the research programme at CeIDE will be the use of data analytics and knowledge discovery in conjunction with soft systems methodologies and design thinking in the development of "rich narratives" that capture the transformation of the currently marginalised to becoming more digitally empowered.
