GeMIDT (PhD program of Lower Saxony)

GeMIDT (Design of mobile Information Systems and Digital Transformation)

  • Duration: 01/01/2017 to 09/30/2020
  • Funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture
  • Funding program: PhD program of Lower Saxony

The PhD program “Design of mobile Information Systems and Digital Transformation” is a structured PhD program with a focus on design-oriented information systems research (Design Science Research). The program is based on a cooperation between the Technical University Braunschweig, the University of Göttingen, the Leibniz University Hannover and the Hannover University of Applied Sciences and it is funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture (Niedersächsisches Promotionsprogramm) .

The program curriculum prepares our doctoral students for their individual reseaerch projects.

The research of our doctoral candidates aims to gain scientific insight, which is drawn from IT-based problem solving. To achieve this, the program includes design science, empirical research methods and theories and emphasizes the cooperation between scientific research and professional experiences (Engaged Scholarship).

From a scientific perspective, design-oriented information systems research is producing theories of highest practical relevance.

The program concentrates on the two key application domains “sustainability, energy sector and mobility” and “mobile businesses, in particular mobile finance.” Research in these two domains will be conducted in the context of the phenomenon of digital transformation. Hence these domains will be addressed in the context of changing technologies, as well as societal, political and regulatory aspects.
