Assistant Professor Maximilian Schreieck (University of Innsbruck), Professor Manuel Wiesche (TU Dortmund University), and Professor Helmut Krcmar (Professor Emeritus of Technical University of Munich) have been awarded the AIS Impact Award 2022 for their social innovation and 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.

With the  AIS Impact Award, the global academic information systems community recognizes information systems research with widespread impact on practice in business and society.
