Laboratory for Networks, Technology & Innovations (NeTI Lab)

The economy ischanging. Jobs are disappearing while creative careers are booming across theglobe. Today’s economy is more turbulent, technological, and connected thanever before. It is centered on knowledge intense teams, global connections, andnew modes of work and life that are reshaping the way in which people sourcetalent and do business.

Networks, Technology, & Innovation (NeTI) Lab is a group established in 2020 at theCorvinus Institute of Advanced Studies. Our research focuses on the impact of networks, innovation, and technologies on work andsociety.
  • Automation and development: we investigate how AIand automation threatens occupations, influences industry structure, businessopportunities and labour mobility in regions.
  • Diffusionand churn of innovation: we develop an empirical network-science framework topredict the adoption and disadoption of innovation at global and local scales.
  • Socialnetworks and inequality: we explore how network structures in cities contributeto income and educational inequalities.
  • Organizational networks, skills and performance: weanalyse the relationship between skills of employees, the network structure oftheir interactions, and firm performance.
  • Priceof contact reduction: we aim to understand the extent to which mobilityrestrictions in certain industries help slowing the spread of COVID-19 in thelight of consequent economic effects following plant closures.
