At the core of research and teaching at the IDS is the question of how differences and diversity in socio-technical systems can contribute to innovation under the conditions of digital transformation.
We address this question with an interdisciplinary team in a broad application context, ranging from individualized products and services through diversity management in teams and organizations to collaboration across organizational and industry boundaries.
Research and teaching at the IDS are therefore closely linked to the work in the field of Industry 4.0 at the Center of Management Research of the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf (DITF), which, like the IDS, is headed by Prof. Dr. Meike Tilebein.
