The Department for E-Governance and Administration conducts research on the effects of digital and social change on strategy, organization and processes. The department's research is twofold - on e-government e-governance, digital participation, and cooperation models and on information security to help society address changing socio-technical and legal governance structures.

Current topics include digital automated processes, decisions and also enforcement acts (e.g. Explainable AI), automation of discretionary decisions, data provision (via quality assurance, data trading to data use for evidence-based decisions), the Once-Only Principle at national and European level, Smart Governance & Digital Sustainability (SDGs) as well as security research, especially in the areas of cyber security and innovative information and communication technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous systems.
