Smart Sustainable Transformation

  • Digital and technological transformation processes
  • Sustainability
  • Strategy development and change management
  • Business model development and innovation

The research group Smart Sustainable Transformation is dedicated to the holistic consideration and design of digital and technological transformation processes. At its core is sustainable development with the aim of achieving social, ecological and economic sustainability. Production and service companies, (business) networks, municipalities or entire regions are the subject of the analysis. With an interdisciplinary team, we explore the interactions of technical, economic and (socio-)cultural factors in science, industry, city administration, and society. The developed approaches to optimize the triad of people – organization – technology are directly implemented and evaluated.
