ISI Organization and Research - Building

As a team of 30 staff members, we are active in basic and applied research, technology watch, creativity and teaching. We are currently participating in research (EU/Cost/Swiss funding) and industrial technology transfer projects in domains as diverse as:

  • Formal models of information visualization in 3D virtual environments
  • Services innovation
  • Large-scale services
  • Indoor positionning and navigation systems
  • Services for seniors
  • Mobile sensors - smartphone, smartwatch, wristband and other wearables
  • Algebraic operations for the management of knowledge resources
  • ...

Our strong involvement in interdisciplinary think groups places us at the forefront of the technology watch in Information Science in Switzerland. We regularly contribute to creativity and innovation hands-on experiments targeted at industry. We have the know-how to cover the complete lifecycle of a R&D project, from its initial idea to a fully operational prototype. By using agile development methods, we combine the advantages of fast prototyping, early involvement of users, and high-quality outcomes. Furthermore in the recent years the ISI researchers have published numerous papers in high-level International journals, conferences and books.
