The Research Group Electronic Business is part of the School of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University and is closely associated with the Computer, Learning and Teaching Space (CLeVer) of the Faculty (see link in the navigation bar).

In research and teaching we focus on diverse aspects of Electronic Business which generally means the electronic support of inter-organizational business processes through information technology. 50 years ago -- at the early stages of electronic data processing -- companies began to reorganize and automate their inter-organizational business processes. The broad diffusion of the Internet has accelerated this process and further opportunities for automating inter-organizational business processes arose. From a scientific point of view we are trying to understand how the organization of economic activities affects Electronic Business and vice versa. Ultimately this will enable us to better design and manage inter-organizational information systems (IOIS).
