Chair & Research

Prof. Dr. Stephanie Teufel holds the Chair of Management in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) which is part of the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland). We focus primarly on three research areas. Each research area is connected to the other ones which allows us to create a high valuable scientific symbiosis. Our continuous research in the area of project management is aimed at developing new methods, structures and procedures to carry out projects more successfully.

Behaviour Analysis for Network Stability

New technologies, new notions of effectiveness in the Utility-sector and the political/societal call for sustainability leads to major shifts in the utility-landscape. New organizational forms of Smart Grids, like the "Crowd Energy"...

 


SCSC

Societal Cyber Security Culture

The importance of cyber security in a crowd environment is rising. The SCSC project investigates the cybersecurity deficit in a loosely coupled environment. An important part are the necessary security measures and behavours of people.
