For Students

What is the potential of new technologies? How can an established firm become as innovative as start-ups? Is Blockchain for Climate Action a radical innovation? What is a product backlog in agile projects? Do you find these questions interesting? Then learn with us – engage in our TIM courses and make an impact with an interesting thesis project.

For Researchers

We are interested in technology and innovation management. We seek to address relevant problems and opportunities. Our research is theory-driven and always seeks empirical validation. Organizational structures or processes as well as human behavior in innovation processes are of central interest to us. New technologies often enter as research subjects or support our innovative research methods. We collaborate with international research teams and promote research talents.

For Firms

TIM research and teaching collaborates closely with innovative firms. Many of our research projects draw on data gathered in and with industrial partners. Research results are actively conveyed in industry meetings and workshops and we are always open to discussing new ideas for collaboration. In particular in teaching, we offer different opportunities for bringing students and firms together in innovative learning formats.

TIM develops a new project management excercise

At the TIM research group we are working on a new teaching and learning concept for module "Fundamentals of Project Management". Students will learn to address specific project management challenges in a simulated project environment. Learning is facilitated through serious game elements, which also will include a new procedure for forming student groups. In an advanced version of the project management game, students will play in an online-format too. If you have questions to the project, please contact our project manager, Helena Wittrich.

New module "TIM Forschungs- und Abschlussarbeitsseminar"

Parallel to your writing process, we offer a new voluntary final theses seminar. In this module, you will get comprehensive and structured supervision for your bachelor thesis.
Twice a year, you get the opportunity to start writing your bachelor thesis at the TIM research group. For this, you must apply before the start of the term. Should you application be accepted, the writing process usually begins four weeks into the term.

Register for participation in the seminar through ISIS.
