Technology and Innovation Management in Agribusiness

The newly established chair group of Technology and Innovation Management in Agribusiness, headed by Prof. Dr. Stefanie Bröring, focuses on current management issues of food and agribusiness. Our central research interest is technology and innovation management (TIM) in agri-food chains and networks. We strive to understand how emerging technologies and innovations (like eg. bio-, nanotech, nutrigenomics or advances in food processing resulting in value-added food ingredients) are adopted by the market, shape existing value chains and may mitigate current challenges on the way to a knowledge-based bioeconomy.

We aim at closely linking theoretical and practical questions in research and education. Our research projects are based on a wide array of quantitative as well as qualitative methods to analyze management questions in the diverse applications fields of food and agribusiness and related sectors (bioeconomy).
