Research to increase the competitiveness of enterprises
Our research focuses on socio-technical systems in business and administration, whose efficiency, quality, competitiveness and satisfaction are to be increased. Special attention is paid to the human being in interaction with increasingly autonomous systems. Self-organisation, autonomy and emergence raise numerous research questions, among others regarding their measurement and evaluation of empirical evidence of their effectiveness, but also regarding their generation, e.g. in adaptable socio-technical systems.
Technological development and innovation
Numerous research and joint projects with highly competitive funding programs for science document our innovative strength. We support the transfer of knowledge to industry and transfer our research findings into practice. The concrete application is manifested in our outstanding research centres, which are an international centre of attraction for technological development and application.
We build bridges between science and practice
The addressee of our research is the general public. Therefore we publish in visible international journals, make our research data available according to the principles of the DFG and create software tools according to the open source principle. We pursue the exploitation of our findings from basic research to applied research and spin-offs.
LSWI wins "Innovative Teaching Projects 2020"
Even in uncertain times, we want to drive forward positive developments in teaching and studies. In our new teaching project (beginning winter term 2020), an innovative method of scenario building on current and future relevant topics will be applied. This method was developed for the first time by our research partners at Hong Kong Polytechnic University in the team of Professor Eric Tsui.
The LSWI wishes you all the best, a lot of patience and best health for the next weeks.
