International Technology Management Research Seminar
Technology management is a dynamic and vibrant research field with a highly interdisciplinary nature – and vast job opportunities domestically and abroad. In this course, we focus on recent trends in an international context. Key concepts are discussed and applied via course assignments. The objective is to deepen the understanding of state-of-the-art technology management approaches for the successful development and commercialization of new products, services, and processes in various industries. Participating groups will work interdisciplinary.
In this winter semester 22/23, our International Technology Management Research Seminar (ITMRS) focuses on sustainable technology management.
Sustainable technologies address environmental, economic, and social sustainability goals. However, these still offer high technological complexity and economic efficiency that enable them to compete with traditional existing technologies.
Companies are seen as key drivers of sustainable technology development. They decide on which technologies to develop, materials to use in production, resources to invest, and risks to take while focusing on the environmental, economic, and social impacts that the new sustainable technology implies.
This seminar focuses on sustainable technology management from a business perspective. It aims at addressing technology development processes, challenges, and drivers that shape companies’ sustainable technology management strategies. The seminar offers both:
- theoretical frameworks on sustainable technology management in companies; and
- case-study examples from technology-based sectors including energy, mobility, and water.
The participants will learn about sustainable technologies in a management and strategy context. In addition, they will be able to understand, analyze, and develop managerial solutions for sustainable technology development.
This course takes place annually in the winter and summer semester. The course is in English.
