The lecture "Socio-Technical Innovation through Design Science Research: Keeping away from obsolete Dichotomies in Information Systems Research" will discuss the value of Information Systems (IS) as an engine for socio-technical innovation through the development of emerging theories, that abstract the situated use of technological artefacts in a societal reality obsessed with technology and rapid fading trends.
