The PhD candidate will conduct research within an EU-funded project on business models for data marketplace platforms. Data marketplaces enable an ecosystem of organizations to share data. Whereas there have been many local pilots, this project aims to scale up and integrate platforms to a pan-European level. The project offers the unique opportunity to study the birth, evolution and upscaling of data marketplace platforms, to which academics normally would have no access.

The candidate will conduct research on designing digital platform architectures and business models for sharing company data through marketplace platforms. Methods may include (action) design research, case studies (with 15 businesses in the project consortium) and surveys. During the PhD, the applicant will conduct this research and prepare scientific articles presenting the research. To enable the applicant to do this successfully, the faculty of TBM and TU Delft offer personal and professional training courses in the form of a graduate school, in which the applicant will participate. Furthermore, the applicant will be mentored by several senior and junior faculty members.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the research project, the applicant will have a relative large degree of freedom concerning the specific research path.
