The University of Sussex today announced that a major new research centre will launch at the start of 2020, exploring how digital technologies are changing the world of work.

The Digital Futures at Work Research Centre (Digit Centre) will operate from the business schools of the universities of Sussex and Leeds and aim to provide a compelling empirical base for policy makers beyond current levels of speculation as to the impact of new technologies on jobs and workers.

The centre, which includes Eversheds Sutherland, Marks and Spencer, Ernst and Young, Walmart US and the Department of Work and Pensions among its knowledge exchange partners and advisory board members, has secured £8 million in Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) funding over a five year period.
