Competence Center for Transformational Innovation Structures

 
The competence center researches and teaches the history and philosophy of innovation, with a focus on entrepreneurial innovation processes and structures.

Research focuses on a holistic understanding of how innovation paradigms, such as that of disruption, emerge, existing ways of thinking are challenged and new ones are actively and democratically shaped.

Developments, needs, structures and approaches are examined transdisciplinarily, patterns are derived and knowledge is transferred into practice through new formats. Practice-oriented projects enable the exchange and transfer of knowledge in politics, economy and society.

Networks are everywhere, from the Internet to platform-driven business models, social networks and ant colonies to the genetic networks that determine our biological existence.

In view of the growing importance of networks in physics, computer science, engineering, economics, and the social sciences, the research field focuses on applications of network approaches, theory building, and innovative methods.
