Briefly describe your organisation
KnowComm is concerned with information design; that is, the presentation of information in a way that people understand complex data in diverse contexts and comprehend complex relationships. Our second research topic is network research, focusing on the interdependencies of organisations and their employees to unveil the structures behind their change over time.
As a research center that concentrates on interfaces and interaction between people, technology, and environment, KnowComm aims to facilitate a greater understanding of complex dynamic systems (e.g., organisational processes, socio-technical networks), to facilitate the handling of information, and to enable the creation of new knowledge. Central to our research projects are individuals and users of (information) technologies, their skills, and their needs.
KnowComm contributes to the Department’s main topics on communication processes and the design of information. The interdisciplinary, integrative team links research and teaching at the department.
Founded in 2006 as an independent facility, KnowComm has extensive international research and project experience. Our eight-person interdisciplinary team works on several (inter)national applied research projects, where we build upon rich links and cooperation with the industry, other research institutions, and the public sector, as well as international cooperation within different research projects.
