The EAM_LAB of the faculty for Computer Science of Hamburg University aims at accelerating research, teaching and practice regarding the management of enterprise architectures. In close cooperation between Hamburg University and companies, new scientific questions shall be derived and be answered in innovative projects. The project results add to the tailored use of EAM methods and tools on the one hand. On the other hand they shall drive research and new inputs for teaching, e.g. by case studies. The EAM_LAB makes innovation and research activities visible for practice and connects with other national and international research institutions.
