8. Laboratory of Information Society Issues

The scientific activity of the laboratory

The main task of the Laboratory of Information Society Issues (LISI) is the implementation of scientific research, the provision of research, technical and training services as well as the promotion and dissemination of the scientific achievements of research teams of the University of Rzeszów.

The following laboratories operate in the Laboratory: Work Ergonomics and Pedagogy, Information and Communication Technologies; E-Learning; Optimization of Knowledge Transfer Processes and Lifelong Learning.

Each of the laboratories - in accordance with its name - conducts research in the field of issues selected in accordance with the implemented research projects. The Laboratory development project envisages the creation of further laboratories: Open Educational Resources and Virtual Education.

The LZSI infrastructure serves all employees of the University of Rzeszów, students, doctoral students and external stakeholders for the implementation of research projects.

Concepts of research projects should be submitted to the head of LZSI. The application should include an indication of sources of financing activities that go beyond the current operating costs of individual laboratories. The project will be implemented after obtaining a positive opinion of the Scientific Council of the Laboratory.


The Laboratory includes the following laboratories:

8.1. Laboratory of Ergonomics and Work Organization

8.2. Laboratory of Information and Communication Technologies

8.3. Laboratory of E-learning

8.4. Laboratory of Knowledge Transfer Optimization

8.5. Laboratory of Lifelong Learning
