About us

The Center for Digital Innovation is a strategic initiative at the Department of Applied Information Technology and aims to strengthen the complete academic environment around digital innovation.

Swedish Center for Digital Innovation (SCDI) is a research center consisting of scholars from the University of Gothenburg, Umeå University and Stockholm School of Economics. SCDI’s vision is to be internationally recognized in the field of digital innovation. It offers a unique context for orchestrating close collaboration between researchers, students, and practitioners to help address challenges in practice and advance new theory.

Academic excellence, educational engagement, and societal impact are at the heart of its mission. The center was founded by Professor Jonny Holmström (Umeå University) and Professor Rikard Lindgren (University of Gothenburg) following a donation from Carl Bennet AB.
