Publication on success conditions for technology transfer

It is often a challenge to transfer new technological achievements from research into practice. Dr. Frederic Hilkenmeier, Christian Fechtelpeter and Dr. Julian Decius have empirically investigated how technology transfer can succeed, using data from the leading-edge cluster it's OWL. For this purpose, they analyzed survey data and objective data from 106 transfer projects. The role played by "hard" factors such as project budget and duration, and the importance of "soft" factors such as trust between the transferor and transferee, can be read in this article published in the "Journal of Technology Transfer".

Learning processes over time

This topic focuses on how (informal) learning behavior in organizations changes over days, weeks, and months. Moreover, we analyze the dynamics of work-related learning and how learning trajectories differ between employees.

Designing work contexts

The goal of this thematic focus is to examine conducive conditions for work-related learning, employability, and organizational development, both by managers (e.g., shaping learning culture) and by employees (e.g., job crafting).

New Work requires New Learning

This topic is dedicated to the question of how employees in dynamic work environments can be empowered to learn "what they really, really want" in a self-directed way. The "Learning Opportunities Perception Potential", which helps employees to grasp learning opportunities, is considered crucial here.
