Knowledge Engineering

  • Human-centered transformation research
  • Cooperation and accompanying research     
  • Urban production     
  • Knowledge Management in an organizational and social context

In the context of the effects of the digitization of the working world, the group Knowledge Engineering conducts application-oriented research on topics such as technology acceptance and change management. Another topic is the work in demographic change, for which the research group develops concepts for analyzing and optimizing the demographic stability of companies.

In addition, the Knowledge Engineering group is researching the development and management of interdisciplinary clusters, with the aim of identifying and systematically promoting synergies as a source of innovation. The basis of this approach is a combined approach based on methods qualitative and quantitative evaluations of empirical social research as well as on data science.

Increased production in urban areas through new production technologies and increasingly individualized and regionalized demand as well as new demands on urban quality of life and sustainability considerations are topics of urban urban development. With a socio-technical research approach, the research group develops opportunities and potentials of the (re-) integration of production into urban space in a holistic way.
