Completed Research Projects

The members of the iA research team were highly motivated and at various stages of their scientific career. PostDocs, doctoral students and research assistants were committed to their research work for national research projects conducted by organizations such as the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) and mandates from the industry. Internationally, the Chair of Information Architecture was involved in EU research projects and worked closely with partner universities from all over the world. Publications appeared regularly, leading to participation in international conferences to share knowledge and insights way beyond Switzerland’s borders.
