Information Systems (IS)
We are interested in understanding and influencing the evolution of large-scale, complex information infrastructures, through empirical analysis and design interventions.
The common denominator in our research is an interest in the interplay between complex socio-technical systems, depicted through the concept of Information Infrastructures. See the group manifesto for more information.
The HISP project is concerned with issues such as Information and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D), Open Source Software (FLOSS) and Action Research through developing and implementing a health information system in a number of third world countries.
