Sustainable Production Management

Research colloquium

The management research colloquium was founded in 2017 by the chair of Sustainable Production Management. Within the colloquium external researchers present their current research projects and discuss them with the attendants.

The management research colloquium provides a platform for casual professional exchange as well as networking amongst each other and with external researchers. It also contributes to the internationalization strategy of the university. Furthermore, we want to provide young researchers and students with a possibility to become familiar with discourses, methods and theories of management research.

In the following overview we present the first world-class speakers who have already presented their research in our colloquium. The chronological order is reversed.
