Topical event

What can enterprise architects learn from academic research? What questions does the research address – and what advice can researchers offer? In this webinar, Professor Stijn Viaene explores these questions with Professor Geert Poels, an experienced academic in enterprise architecture (EA) from Ghent University.

There is an argument that academic EA research is way too formal, abstract and theoretical to be practical. But at the same time, EA researchers are often told that their research is too applied. Where does this paradox come from?

In this webinar, we join Professors Stijn Viaene and Geert Poels to uncover the differences in perception between EA practice and research – and how they can both learn from each other.
