Creating synergies

Research is carried out in an application-orientated context. Research results are incorporated into consulting projects, published in scientific publications and made available to the Bavarian Universities of Applied Sciences via adequate exchange forums coordinated by the Bavarian Foresight Institute, as well as transferred to industry and society. The institute advances young academics by supervising doctoral theses of the mainly third-party financed academic staff. Due to a close integration with various partners, the research institute will focus on third-party financed public projects as well as industry projects.
To create a close link between teaching and research four research professorships werer appointed in the following fields:

  • Strategic Foresight and Trend Analysis
  • Technology Design and Applications
  • Business Development and Transformation Management
  • Technology Assessment and Cultural Management

Research focuses on foresight methods, technology trend analyses, scenarios through technologies, new technologies (AI, biotechnology, etc.), technology business model development, technology transformation, sustainability, technology culture, business ethics, societal resilience and the interplay of technological and cultural change.

The focus of teaching is the master's program "Global Foresight and Technology Management" for German and international students, which has started in the winter semester 2021/22. It provides interdisciplinary skills at the interface of technology, economics and sociology with a strong foresight focus. The program is characterized by an innovative, strongly project study-oriented teaching concept.
