Our re­search

The Chair of Information Systems, in particular Sustainability, focusses its research on the following topics:

  • Digital resilience (e.g. in the field of critical infrastructures)
  • Information security management and compliance
  • Positive and negative effects of information systems (Dark&Bright Side of Information Systems)

As the Chair of Information Systems, in particular sustainability, it is particularly important to us that our research adds value both theoretically and practically. At a time when digitalisation has become a social phenomenon, we not only transfer our research concepts and solutions to specific stakeholders, but also take a holistic, social perspective. In addition, we conduct our research on an interdisciplinary basis with various institutions from research and practice in order to pool our expertise.

In our latest research project, the third-party-funded HowToDIGITAL project, which we are conducting together with the University of Göttingen, the University Hospital of Cologne and practice partners such as Gematik and Techniker Krankenkasse, our aim is to sustainably advance the digitalisation of the healthcare system by better involving different medical user groups in the development and operation of medical software.
