Information management institute
The institute, led by Professor Kilian Stoffel, is active in all aspects of information management, with emphasis on information representation and knowledge extraction. The different projects are built around the model for information representation called ontology, a key aspect of the semantic web.
The different projects are largely funded by the Swiss National Fund, as well as through collaborations with businesses. Several projects have led to scientific publications, doctoral thesis and patents.
The institute also ensures formation in the domain of Business Information Systems, with courses and seminars adapted to the challenges of todays markets.
