Our research  focuses on the design and development of information systems to provide functioning solutions for the problems of today and tomorrow. This includes methods for the analysis of complex systems, interactions between people and IT systems and security management.

We apply our research to real-life, important problems. This might be disaster management on a large scale, support for efficient meeting management or lifelong learning.

As researchers, we are also interested in people’s lives, work, educational activities and leisure pursuits. We want to understand and affect how technology impacts and changes our daily lives.

The research at DSV is genuinely cross-disciplinary. It often spans several subject areas and incorporates perspectives and methods from other fields such as psychology, linguistics, philosophy, statistics and mathematics. Our research also contributes to these fields through methods and technologies for seeking new knowledge.
