WIN - the Institute of Information Systems - is a joint initiative of the Chair of Information Systems I, the Chair of Information Systems II, and the Chair of Information Systems III
at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg. Located in
Nuremberg, the institute is attached to the School of Business and
Economics, but with close relationships to the chairs of informatics
The main objectives of the Institute of Information Systems are:
- To promote cooperation within the university and with other institutions, in Germany and globally
- To strengthen interdisciplinary research and teaching.
- To promote young researchers in the field of information systems
- To disseminate research results to the scientific community and the interested public
- To initiate research projects that attract outside funding.
- To provide practice-oriented solutions to real-world problems based on sound research
The strength of information
systems in Nuremberg is the global view on information systems from an
economic perspective. The main foci of interest are Innovation and Value
Creation (Chair of IS I), Service- and Process Management
(Chair of IS II), and Technology and Project Management (Chair of IS III).
The collaboration of these three information system chairs enables various joint projects and publications (see e.g. open-I and 2nd tech).
Through interaction with our business partners we can ensure that our
research and teaching activities cover the complex social problems in
the business world. Thus, we aim to establish long-term relationships
with practitioners and welcome ongoing cooperation in research and
Currently the information systems chairs offer
lectures and seminars for various Bachelor, as well as Master programs.
