In the research division Requirements Engineering (RE), we concentrate on developing practically relevant approaches to efficiently handle requirements in early, volatile, human-centered, and often data-dominated software development stages. We investigate practice-relevant RE research to reproducibly control and improve quality in environments that are often highly regulated, data-dominated, and user-centric. To this end, our research is driven by continuous experimentation, development, evaluation, and technology transfer. Our research activities place special emphasis on collaboration with relevant industries.
