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.
