IEM seeks connections between topics and issues. Phenomena are analysed as large entities, as specialised information alone is not enough to solve the complex problems that arise in the ever-changing and digitalising operating environment.

The latest research information in the field is utilised in teaching, and research and education complement each other in daily activities.
