Research Program on Digital Innovation, Economics, and Strategy

The Research Program on Digital Innovation, Economics, and Strategy (RPDIES) uses quantitative analysis of large data sets and field experiments to study the economics, design, and management of digital businesses, innovation systems, and platforms. RPDIES brings together methods from economics, social, behavioral and policy sciences with those of data science, computer science, and engineering. 

IoT Open Innovation Lab @ Northeastern

The IoT Open Innovation Lab is a special initiative of RPDIES and Northeastern to deploy an IoT Open Innovation platform to enable innovation, experimentation, and development of IoT applications by Northeastern community members, solving problems for affiliated companies. The project is supported by collaborations with industry and the wider university. This initiative is part of the College of Engineering's IoT Research Cluster.
