Research Group on Knowledge and Information Systems and Services

The KISS research group builds upon emerging developments in information technologies (IT). It acknowledges the potential of IT on changing work practices, transforming organizational structures, and leading to novel information services. These practices, structures, and services lead to new paradigms of work organization and to a more important role played by services in contemporary information-centered economy and life.

The KISSrg aims at contributing with scientific and technological knowledge relevant to:

    improved organizational performance (either within for profit, non for profit, or governmental organizations), achieved through the adoption of IT enabled work practices and sustained through activities that look after organizational cognitive capabilities;
    • enhanced quality of life in the information society based on human and social oriented information services with recognized added value and highly trustable either from the points of view of reliability or security.

KISSrg includes two main research streams:

  • (i) Organizational Well-Being - OWB;
  • (ii) Valuable and Trustable Information Services - VTIS.
