Special Business Collaborations

As a future-oriented chair we want to be prepared for the future. In doing so, we attach great importance to innovative research and teaching. Within the scope of cooperation projects, we would like to pursue this goal together with companies by devoting ourselves to researching the future of the work. In doing so, we derive research questions together with our partner companies so that they are tailored to the company.
