Our project "The Mobile Prospects" concentrates primarily on Mobile Financial Services (also referred to as Mobile Banking). After conducting 6 broad-based, large-scale studies on various Mobile Commerce applications, it was felt that, owing to resources-constraints, attention should be focussed on this particular field so as to deliver quality research and offer advisory services to the industry including banks, IT solution providers and network carriers. Research in other Mobile Commerce fields (e.g. Mobile Marketing or Mobile Information Services) may be carried out, if the topic is intersting and there is significant interest of a cooperation partner.
As a part of this policy we conduct research on various issues, usually in cooperation with our industry partners. Research themes include:
issues of general interest, that we keep under close, permanent observation;
b) issues that are of specific interest to one or more of our cooperation partners.
Currently four projects are underway:
