The Center for E-Governance conducts research and teaches on the effects of digital and social change on strategy, organization and processes. The focal points of the center are divided into e-government and e-governance, digital participation and cooperation models. Examples include sustainable policy-making, the once-only principle, automated administrative procedures and data ecosystems (linked data, open data).

The research results serve to raise awareness of changing socio-technical and legal governance structures and form the basis for decisions in public administration, politics, business, science and society. A high degree of inter- and transdisciplinarity is the basic paradigm of all teaching and research activities. Through the approach of research-driven teaching, research results and best practices from other sectors flow directly into the development and provision of the center's training and continuing education programs.
