L’activitat científica del grup se centra en la investigació, la transferència tecnològica i la formació en temes lligats a la modelització i el processament de la informació, com ara la modelització conceptual, la qualitat de les dades, la intel•ligència del negoci, la mineria de dades o l’enginyeria de serveis. En el marc d’aquesta activitat, els membres del grup han aconseguit en el període 2014-juny 2017 14 projectes de R+D competitius i diversos contractes amb empreses, amb un ingrés total que supera els tres milions d’euros. També han publicat més de 50 articles en revistes indexades al Journal Citation Reports (JCR) i 15 capítols de llibre. A nivell formatiu, coordinen un Erasmus Mundus de Màster i han dirigit 11 tesis doctorals en els últims tres anys i mig. A més, compten amb nombroses col·laboracions internacionals i duen regularment a terme accions de divulgació científica dels resultats de la recerca.
