Ignace Decroix

Researcher, Digital Transformation & Organisational Behaviour

Ignace is a researcher who focuses on Industry 4.0 and digitised supply chains.

Ignace Decroix is a researcher at Vlerick who specialises in people and organisations. His research relates to the study of Industry 4.0 – and he’s also involved in the Centre for People in the Smart Digitised Supply Chain.

His work is varied – from research into trust in human-machine interaction, technophobia and autonomous teams to authoring a book on how companies can facilitate human-centric digital transformation.

Ignace believes that companies can’t succeed in digital transformation if they only look at the technical side – such as implementing new technologies and upgrading existing legacy systems. He considers a company’s employees its real assets to drive digital change.

Alongside his studies, Ignace gives workshops on blockchain and digital assets. In 2018, his Master’s thesis on Early Modern Socio-Cultural Cartography earned him the André Schaepdrijver Prize.
