our research focus
Innovation- & Technology Management
How do new technologies and innovation occur and how are they changing current structures-, procceses-, cooperation-, knowledge-norms in companies?
Smart Living & Energy Systems Management
We focus not only on the technical aspects of the future utility-market, but also and mainly on its impact on the current and future players of the utility market.
Cyber Security Management
The implementation of a Cyber Security Cultur inside structured and unstructured environments is a crucial and important factor in Cyber Security Policy.
The smart grid initiative is a precious instrument to support ambitious goals of emission reduction, energy efficiency and stable energy distribution. Inherently, it replaces concepts and perceptions of energy which puts the product "energy"...
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"...
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.
The Chair of Management in ICT and the iimt are conducting research in the smart living lab in a multidisciplinary environment for the work and living environment of the future in the following research topics:
- decentralised and autarkic energy structures
- infrastructure management
- Security and Security culture
- Share Economy and Business modelling
Teams from all over the world are welcome to design and produce an energy efficient living unit without any restrictions in comfort and attractiveness. Furthermore, actual and future energy challenges have to be considered.
The Solar Decathlon contest offer a unique opportunity to create educational programmes in the field of architecture and engineering by working together in a concrete project.
Crowd Energy is the collective effort of individuals or profit or non-profit organizations, or both, pooling their resources through online ICT-applications to help to implement the energy turnaround. This implies both, the concept of decentralization (production, storage and consumption of renewable electricity) and a substantial change in society, economy and politics.
Our research priority "Crowd Energy" focuses not only on the technical part of the new energy market, but also its consequences on incumbent and new players in the market: new market design, prosumer behaviour and new business models are some examples, which reflects the new energy sector.
