Research strategy

Our research strategy was created by the researchers at the department and it plays an important role in the development of our research.

The research strategy sets to describe information systems as a research discipline in general, but also specifically at the Department of Informatics. It details our mission, values, and aspirations within our research. Furthermore it expresses how we can achieve those aspirations and outlines the expectations for our members of staff.
