Ubiquitous working - Challenges and opportunities for the networked world

Increased networking and virtualization allow the separation of work from the workplace. From the universal presence of work grows a ubiquity of work - Ubiquitous Working (UW). An interdisciplinary research network with a focus on microeconomics will deal with the theoretical and empirical issues surrounding the opportunities and challenges of UW. To this end, a broad and unique database will be created and used on different levels in order to examine the different dimensions of UW from the perspectives of the disciplines involved.  An essential part of the research project is networking activities that support joint research and promote exchanges between the involved partners.
