Waikato links up with ERCIS

Waikato Management School has been invited to be the New Zealand representative in the European research networking group for information systems.

ERCIS, the European Research Center for Information Systems, brings together researchers across the fields of computer science, business administration and institutional legal issues. Headquartered in Germany, ERCIS has members in 16 countries.

Prof Jim Corner of the Department of Management Systems says ERCIS is about organisational design. "It's not just about systems but how they connect with people, and that's of huge importance to business." He says membership of ERCIS will also enable the School to apply for EU research funding.
