The following research centres affiliate with the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences.


The eGovlab formed in 2011 and is a place where the future of inclusive governance and citizen service delivery forge, not just in theory but also in practice. The aim is to visualise the effects of the Government's transformations geared toward inclusion, transparency, effectiveness and change management, and to contribute to building new platforms, which provide both policymakers and citizens to participate in the research and development of future e-government.

eGovlab conducts multi-disciplinary research close to both clients and funders to streamline operations within the state while joining social sustainability and responsibility with technological innovation.


SPIDER - The Swedish Programme for Information and Communication Technology in Developing Regions formed in 2004. It is a central node in a network of actors from academia, civil society, government and business in Sweden and abroad.

The Centre supports developing countries by providing relevant IT and creating and supporting networks for collaboration. Spider promotes, together with Swedish and international partners, the development of infrastructure and human efforts in strategic areas such as accessibility, e-learning, e-government and e-health, with human rights as a basis.
