Our research is marked by a diversity of subjects from the fields of innovation and entrepreneurship that lead to first class research cooperations through the application of qualitative and quantitative state-of-the-art methods to current issues from research and practice. Our research projects are closely linked to practice and are financially supported by both public and private funds. Our research results are regularly presented at international conferences. In addition, the results are incorporated into our teaching and makes it possible to gain especially talented and interested students for the work on our projects.
