Chair of Organization and Innovation

Prof. Dr. Karin Hoisl

Prof. Dr. Karin Hoisl

The Chair of Organization and Innovation is dedicated to the further development of organizational theories and organizational design - especially at the interface with innovation management. In addition, we support students in developing a critical understanding of economic interrelationships in the areas of organization and innovation to prepare them for future organizational challenges in a global competition.

Our research approach is quantitative-empirical, international-comparative and combines theoretical approaches from economics and behavioral sciences. Data analysis with sophisticated quantitative and qualitative methods enables the derivation of causal results.

Research areas:

  • Knowledge management (e.g., knowledge acquisition and knowledge recombination, open innovation)
  • Creativity and inventiveness (e.g., Organizational learning and creativity)
  • IP strategy (e.g., protection and commercialization of innovations)
  • Teams
  • Management and sociology of science
  • Entrepreneurial finance
