Choosing a disruptive technologies PhD topic
Your PhD topic should be of interest to you and hopefully fill a gap in knowledge (both from industry practitioners and academic theory). Try reading some recent relevant journal articles and then based on your experience, formulate an initial question which you believe will create a unique contribution to knowledge. You might pay special attention to the final section of recent journal papers which call for further research in a theme that you’re interested in. From there, you should write a proposal based on this initial gap. Contact us for more information.
