Pär Ågerfalk Vice President of the Association for Information Systems Region 2
Pär Ågerfalk has been elected Vice President of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) Region 2 (Europe, Africa and the Middle East). The appointment starts on 1 September 2023, and extends over three years. “It’s an incredible honor just to be nominated and the fact that I now have the members' support feels very good,” says Ågerfalk. AIS is an international organisation that gathers academics in the information systems discipline from over 100 countries.
In his election platform, Pär Ågerfalk said he wants to work to increase the visibility and awareness of the discipline among decision-makers and funding agencies. “I have worked on that issue through the Swedish Information Systems Academy with, for instance, The Swedish Research Council. Now I look forward to bring the discussion to the EU level and also look at good examples from other countries within AIS Region 2.”, Ågerfalk explains.
