Seeking real-world solutions
IDE examines the benefits and opportunities from advances in technology and digitization in economies, societies, and lives. Our research and dissemination aim to advance knowledge and help businesses, governments and individuals adapt to a world in transformation. Our work is made possible by the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations.

The IDE Annual Report Recaps a Year of Remarkable Achievements. In 2019 we expanded our global reach and partnered with visionaries who are making a mark on today's digital age—and shaping the future. As we enter 2020, our impact on the digital economy will grow even stronger.
The mission of the IDE is rooted in positive action. We believe there is remarkable opportunity for humans to thrive and prosper in the digital age. While our research is academic in its approach, our charter is to understand, inform, and pragmatically solve real-world challenges based on facts and causality.
