The objective of the professorship for technology & management in Dortmund is to bridge the gap between management and development of innovative technologies. 


The research focus of the professorship of technology & management is two fold. First, we investigate extensively research, development, and sales of technological innovations in established companies. Especially, we focus on the resilience and absorptive capacities of small- and medium-sized companies. For example we try to understand how external knowledge could be absorbed and further used in organizations. Second, we conduct extensive research on processes, values and beliefs that established companies could adopt from start-ups or how those have to be adapted to be useful for established organizations.
