The professorship is also interested in short or long-term research cooperations. A long-term collaboration comprises, for instance, the funding of a research associate by the cooperating company. Research papers to be submitted to relevant journals for publication inter alia evolve out of this funding. Please contact us in case you are interested in a research project.
Within the scope of the cooperation with THINKSURANCE, the Chair of Technology Management is concerned with the topic "Marketing in young and growth-oriented companies". In this research project, the professorship wants to survey and analyse the marketing activities of the young growth-oriented company in detail. In particular, this involves the analysis of the marketing instruments used and the evaluation of the effects of these instruments over time. Furthermore, the role of the most important decision makers (CEO, CMO and investors) in the design of marketing will be investigated.
Within the framework of research cooperation with the KfW, the Chair of Technology Management uses the data of the annual start-up monitor for its empirical research. In particular, the research projects examine the activities of new founders and analyse the behaviour of hybrid entrepreneurs as a special form of business start-up.
The professorship for technology management is doing research together with IDnow on the topic "Success factors in B2B partnerships". The research project focuses in particular on partnerships with established companies that face high regulatory and security requirements.
The Chair of Technology Management is conducting research together with A-Z GartenHaus GmbH on the topic of "Success factors of a purely digital customer journey for projects and services requiring intensive consultation". This research project focuses on the digitalisation of the stationary trade and its influence on the customer experience.
The Chair of Technology Management conducts research together with FLEX Capital in the area of management practices in technology companies. Within the framework of this research project, success factors for start-ups are examined.
Within the research cooperation with CoachHub, the Chair of Technology Management focuses primarily on two areas. On the one hand, it is dedicated to the measurability of coaching success, operationalised as a well-known return indicator, and on the other hand, the effectiveness of coaching interventions is examined in a scientifically sound manner.
Together with Hubert Burda Media, the Chair of Technology Management conducts research on the perception of company founders by investors and end customers. Furthermore, success factors of entrepreneurial behaviour, marketing and branding activities are investigated.

Location & approach
The campus of TU Dortmund University is located close to interstate junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dortmund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dortmund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dortmund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the university are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dortmund.
To get from Campus North to Campus South by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus North and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.
TU Dortmund University has its own train station ("Dortmund Universität"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dortmund main station ("Dortmund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The university is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.
You can also take the bus or subway train from Dortmund city to the university: From Dortmund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dortmund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dortmund main station to the stop "Dortmund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dortmund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dortmund Universität S".
The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dortmund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dortmund Universität S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the university directly with the city of Dortmund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.
The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
