Research Seminars


We adopt a holistic, multidisciplinary, and interdisciplinary approach to our work, with the aim of integrating data, software, hardware, people, and processes within the organizational, institutional, and societal context. We recognize that this approach is inherently complex, given the unpredictable behavior and interaction of system components in their environment. To address this challenge, we focus on several important generic and applied research themes.
