Expertise

We perform basic and applied research, carry out contract research and conduct consulting projects. Our network in academia and industry includes highly specialized regional SMEs as well as global industrial players and top-ranked international universities.

In our R&D projects, we cover all aspects of design science research, a problem-driven approach characterized by the systematic analysis, design, creation, and evaluation of digital artefacts. Unlike empirical research, it is not constrained to just description, explanation and prediction. Instead, it aims to change the world, improve it and create new worlds. This includes the creation of novel artefacts, knowledge about them, their use, environment, and impact. We are creating digital artefacts to fulfil people’s needs and desires, overcome their problems and take advantage of new opportunities.
