Our research on Designing Digitalization focuses on the omnipresent digital transformation of society, human activities, and how we contribute to this transformation as designers and developers.
The department strives to be recognized as a leading information systems research centre in Europe. Research in information systems in Lund is multi-disciplinary in its approach and has a strong international focus in terms of research issues and general involvement. At the Department of Informatics we make a difference through understanding, explaining and improving our world and the human conditions by expanding our intellectual footprint in the field of Information Systems (IS) through conducting research on design, implementation and effects of IS.
