 Central aim of organisation
Transformation support in digitization

 Briefly describe your organisation
The department has been established in 1995 and is known for its tuned developments across disciplines, in particular in individual and organizational learning. A multidisciplinary team forms the core in research and teaching. Living the paradigm of self-organization leads to taking active responsibilities in education, learning, and project cooperations. We understand systems as socio-technical constructs when working on the development of interactive distributed systems, and techniques for knowledge elicitation and representation. Evaluation is grounded on human and technical criteria in a coherent way.
