Next-Generation Enterprise Modelling

Topics and Program

The summer school offers a two week program combining lectures and practical work in multicultural groups based on six topical pillars. The underlying topic is conceptual modelling for innovation, design and engineering of digital ecosystems.

The Framework

The Digital Innovation environment of OMiLAB enables experimentation and training for both conceptualization and engineering activities. Stakeholders from a multi-disciplinary background are supported to develop innovative ideas as digital business models, to materialize them in proof-of-concept and to evaluate their feasibility in a laboratory setting.

OMiLAB Framework


The NEMO Summer School provides a highly interactive experimental environment, where students and teachers focus on conceptual modelling for digital innovation ecosystems, covering topics such as:

  • Foundations of Conceptual Modelling, i.e. formal methods and tools for modelling method creation, transformation and application.
  • “Smart Models” for humans and machines, i.e. model execution technologies, meta-modelling platforms, modelling compilers, adaption to diverse devices and multi-client applications.
  • Concepts and technologies for Digital Ecosystems, i.e. Enterprise Information Systems, e-Government, Health Care and Ambient Assisted Living.
  • Digital Design Thinking
  • Enterprise Digital Twins
  • Cross-cutting Issues, i.e. information security, privacy, risk management and governance, and quality assurance of models and methods.

Language of Instruction

The language of instruction for all lectures and working groups is English. Students must be able to follow lectures, express theirselves in discussions and write papers in English.
