The Department of Digitalization conducts research within the following research areas related to information technology and information systems:

  • Design
  • Implementation
  • Use and Exploitation
  • Information Management

We strive for a high level of collaboration with representatives from industry and society (so-called engaged scholarship) while also organizing our research to accommodate for the fast-moving pace and radical innovation that characterizes the Information Systems research field. We achieve this by organizing part of our research around themes that address societal or business challenges. The themes are topical, popular, inter-disciplinary and dynamic in nature. In addition to the research themes, DIGI still maintains the more traditional research areas for the disciplinary development of its researchers.
