Maximilian Schreieck, a business informatics specialist from the University of Innsbruck, has been awarded the AIS Impact Award 2022 in Copenhagen together with Manuel Wiesche from the Technical University of Dortmund and Helmut Krcmar from the Technical University of Munich for their digital integration platform Integreat.
Their project "Integreat" is a non-profit digital solution that enables local authorities to share critical and up-to-date information with refugees in multiple languages. This is a prime example of how information systems can be used for the common good as a social good. The platform is used by more than 80 municipalities in Germany and is run and maintained by the non-profit organization Tür an Tür Digitalfabrik.
With this award, the global academic information systems community recognizes information systems research with widespread impact on practice in business and society.
