ERCIS The European Research Center for Information Systems is a lively international network of researchers and practitioners active in the field of Information Systems (IS). Our different perspectives and backgrounds allow for the unique and country-spanning multi-disciplinary work on current IS questions and "hot topics".

Competences in five research clusters: Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, Process Science, Knowledge and Learning, Smart Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management, Digital Public Services

ISI The Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI conducts applied research in seven Competence Centers with a total of 28 Business Units and sees itself as an independent institute for society, politics and industry. Our expertise in the area of innovation research is based on the synergy of the technical, economic and social science knowledge of our staff members. In our work we apply not only a broad spectrum of advanced scientific theories, models, methods and social-science measurement instruments, but continually develop them further, utilizing the empirical findings from the research projects conducted.
