The research we carry out is geared towards high scientific relevance and application orientation. What does that mean? It means that we use theoretical findings and fundamental sciences to develop models and processes for practical implementation. 

ERCISDue to the different specialisations of our professorships and working groups, we cover a wide spectrum of topics related to information systems. Our research projects are supported and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Federal Ministry of the Interior, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the European Union, the Stiftung Industrieforschung, the Bertelsmann Stiftung, NATO, Procope and partner companies. 

Our research is integrated in the work of the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS). ERCIS is an international network of prestigious research institutions. The network is known for its excellent collaborations and uncomplicated manner of initiating research projects. Its other strengths include the personal contact between researchers and the wide spectrum of different perspectives it offers on information systems research, both in terms of disciplines and nationalities.
