Research + Development

Through research and development, we explore the changes caused by digitisation in the public sector. Our focus is on the transformation of democratic processes and new forms of participation, on building a suitable data infrastructure and on designing and supporting innovation and change processes.

We are working on a series of applied research and development projects in close collaboration with stakeholders from the public sector, private industry, non-profit organisations, associations and academia. 

We offer the following opportunities for collaboration: 

•    Devising and conducting applied research and development projects, for example Innosuisse and EU projects 
•    Research mandates
•    Assistance with basic research

Depending on the project, we work with colleagues from other institutes at Bern University of Applied Sciences and/or with external partners.
