Vision

With our interdisciplinary research, we empower product companies to thrive in a world of hardware, software, and service. More specifically, we investigate how emerging technologies and corresponding business model innovation can create sustainable competitive advantage for product companies. In addition, we develop, implement, and evaluate smart, connected systems that have the potential to create a meaningful impact for the better. Our research spans multiple disciplines such as information systems, technology and innovation management, and applied computer science. In our interdisciplinary projects we closely collaborate with researchers and industry experts from domains such as health, mobility, and energy.

Research Labs

We organize our core research activities in research labs. While we operate the Bosch Lab, we also contribute to the Centre for Digital Health Interventions. Please follow the links to the respective lab pages.

Recent Books

We aim at scientific rigor and industrial relevance. Hence, we publish our results in scientific journals and in books for practitioners and academics. Please find our most recent books below.

Selected Publications

Our transdisciplinary research has been published in journals including Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly Executive, New England Journal of Medicine AI, Diabetes Care, Applied Energy, Transportation Research, IEEE Internet of Things and at leading Computer Science and Information Systems conferences such as ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems.
