Through excellent research in dialog with the public, we want to help shape a digital society that is people-friendly.
Developing the potential of digitalization for human interests, needs and capabilities is one of the central challenges of democratic societies. CAIS is a place of innovative research and a source of ideas for a critical public that is coming to an understanding about a self-determined life in the digital age. Through outstanding research, we want to establish a distinctive profile in the national and international scientific landscape. By proposing evidence-based solutions, we help shape the digital transformation in a way that puts people at the center. In doing so, we foster a culture of open, transformative science and initiate exchange with politics, business and civil society.
