Organisation profile

Layman's description

Information Science is a research domain which unites computer science (the enabling IT technology) and management science (users seeking effective and efficient application of IT technology). In a sense, the information science discipline is a response to the inability on, both practical as well as on a scientific level, to realize the envisioned success of IT applications in a straightforward manner. The inherent complexities of combining technological excellence with organization design and governance is seen as a key problem area in the research efforts in our Information Science department.  

The Department of Information Science has defined its mission as "to foster the co-evolution of the application of Information Systems in its environment to the greater benefit of the value creation of organizations, networks and society in general." 

The department has three research lines under the Research Program Advancing Information Science (AIS):

  • Strategic design 
  • Governance
  • Processes research 

All three research clusters are highly interdependent, and therefore it makes sense to study them in harmony to avoid isolated views and risk sub-optimization.
