SIRIS Lab is a research and innovation centre
that aims to understand and improve organisations


With the main goal of applying research to enhance organisations, SIRIS Lab hosts an interdisciplinary team of experts from humanities to technology.


Data analytics and visualization
The extraction of knowledge from data through statistics, information technology and visualization for organisational diagnosis and development.


Knowledge representation and reasoning
The study of the expressivity and computational complexity of formal languages used to specify knowledge to enable intelligent and automatic support for problem solving.


Cultural evolution
The development of a trans-disciplinary framework to study how culture is transmitted, selected and changes (in a long term perspective).


Institutions and collective organisations*
The study of human organisations and their regulating norms, to understand how they can foster interaction, knowledge and fairness.
*organisational development, systems, borders.


Organisation of science
The quantitative study of how science is organised and communicated, paying special attention to science policies.


At SIRIS Lab we use cutting edge technologies to support the exploration of complex datasets. This enables our consultants and researchers to improve the understanding of the data they analyse.

SIRIS Lab provides expertise on the design and development of data access and data integration technologies that are built on top of expert domain knowledge. We rely on state-of-the-art Semantic Web technologies, and current Linked Open Data standards, in order to offer semantically-transparent platforms, ready to acquire (and be complemented with) data from different sources, stored in different formats, and structured according to different conceptualizations.
