IAMSR/Åbo Akademi University is a research institute with the objective to study and develop the theory and applications of intelligent and knowledge based systems in management. The research is carried out in cooperation with major Finnish companies, normally as several-year research contracts, which makes the research relevant and verifiable as to both the theoretical foundations and the usefulness of the systems technology developed.
The research focus of IAMSR is on supporting people in expanding the limits of the possible in the structures of everyday life, which is guiding both fundamental and applied research and the development and use of soft computing and intelligent systems technologies. IAMSR builds on a research tradition in management science and information systems research.
IAMSR has organized its research projects into three research units, which all contribute to the IAMSR research core:
IAMSR research is lead by professors Christer Carlsson and Pirkko Walden with three visiting professors: professor Robert Fullér [FIDIPRO] from Etövös Lorand University in Budapest, professor Harry Bouwman from TU Delft and professor Mario Fedrizzi from University of Trento.
IAMSR works with rather an extensive international network of research cooperation, which has contributed to an effective dissemination of research results:
