This Research Consortium for 'Working together towards a better Digital Business and Society' research represents a dynamic joint initiative by the Digital Organisation and Society (DOS) research centre at Royal Holloway, University of London and the British Academy of Management e-Business and Information Systems Management SIG. It is devoted to tackling key global challenges through comprehensive research, impactful contributions, and the navigation of careers centered around the digital realm. This collaborative platform serves as a nexus for academics engaged in multidisciplinary research, catering to individuals at various stages of their careers, including senior scholars, early career researchers, and Ph.D. students.

At its core, the Consortium fosters an environment conducive to meaningful discussions aimed at advancing the collective knowledge and comprehension of publishing research with a focus on digital business and society. By delving into the intricacies of 'digital,' participants explore avenues that not only contribute to scholarly advancement but also pave the way for real-world impact.

Beyond the academic discourse, the Consortium seeks to empower its attendees with valuable insights on successfully steering an academic career in the digital landscape. Through shared experiences, guidance, and strategic information, participants gain the tools necessary to navigate the complexities of an academic career trajectory.

In essence, this Research Consortium emerges as a pivotal hub where academia converges to address the forefront challenges of the digital era, fostering collaboration, knowledge exchange, and professional development among researchers with a shared commitment to advancing our understanding of the digital landscape.

Amidst the hype and research attention surrounding digital technologies impacting businesses and academia, this consortium offers an excellent opportunity for an inclusive generation of key takeaways. Topics discussed will include, but are not limited to, Generative AI, Metaverse, digital humans and virtual influencers in research and new cutting-edge technologies that improve or disrupt business processes, value creation, and societal impact.
