Social and economic transformation requires a fundamental realignment of our economic and social structures that is informed by sound economic and social science understanding of the dynamics, conditions and frameworks, interdependencies, and accelerating forces that influence our changing world. Besides the classical social science topics such as demographic change and the changing labour market, organisations, and consumption, counseling and educational research is being addressed under this research theme.

The complex societal and social processes associated with the introduction of new technologies are being examined, societal and economic developments are being analysed, and social acceptance and relevance is being considered and transferred into the public, politics, and companies and organisations.
