Welcome to the Chair for Innovation and Technology Management

The Chair for Innovation and Technology Management generates scientific insights with practical relevance in the research field of innovation and technology management. The objective is to foster a continuous dialog between scientists and practitioners. This dialog gives rise to the identification of problems with practical relevance and to the knowledge-based development of practical design measures for industry and service companies. Teaching here is defined by the aspiration to communicate scientific methods and concepts in an application-related way and to review them critically.
