We are currently offering a master thesis on the topic of "Open Innovation platforms for engineering? Identification of prerequisites". Open engineering processes in the field of electronic systems (low-power, high-power) require, in many ways, specific prerequisites, which differ from the general forms of interaction that are used in traditional open innovation processes. In this thesis, a criteria have to be developed for the evaluation of existing engineering platforms, which are meant to be used in the main phase of this project.
Wie jedes Jahr im Frühsommer hatte das Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) zum Kongress in das bcc in Berlin geladen. Der Titel der diesjährigen Veranstaltung war „Produzieren im digitalen Zeitalter“. Als Vertreter aus dem Wi1-Team konnten Sascha Julian Oks und Stefan Genennig den Industrie 4.0 fokussierten Kongress nutzen, um Erkenntnisse aus den vom BMBF geförderten Projekten „Ressourcen-Cockpit für Sozio-Cyber-Physische Systeme“ (S-CPS) und „Smarte Dienstleistungs-Fabrik“ (Smart DiF) mit Wissenschaftlern und Praktikern zu diskutieren.
Der Verein Deutscher Ingenieure (VDI) berichtet in der aktuellen Ausgabe der VDI-Nachrichten über das forum on Philosophy, Engineering and Technology (www.fPET2016.org), das dieses Jahr vom WI1 in Nürnberg veranstaltet wurde. Dabei wird die Rolle des JOSEPHS bei der Umsetzung innovativer Interaktionsformate besonders hervorgehoben.
WI1 is involved in one of the hottest topics for Information Systems Research. As part of the VeSiKi project team, Kathrin Möslein, Albrecht Fritzsche, Matthias Rass and Max Jalowski consult and support the German research initiative ITS KRITIS on cybersecurity of critical infrastructures (see www.itskritis.de). They are also actively involved in running the yearly ITS KRITIS conference. This year’s conference was held in Bremen. The WI1 team ran workshops, chaired sessions and discussed with policy makers, industrial experts and strategists.
Wi1’s Research Associate Christofer Daiberl took part at the 23rd European Operations Management (EurOMA) Conference at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in the beautiful town of Trondheim. The stimulating conference was based on the theme “interactions”, which is rooted in the Scandinavian research tradition that focuses on applied and multidisciplinary research. In doing so, it shall be ensured that generated solutions ultimately benefit industry and society.
The 24th European Conference on Information Systems was held for the first time in Istanbul, Turkey. The beautiful Boğaziçi University beside the Bosphorus hosted the conference, which focused on the theme of “Information Systems as a Global Gateway”. The theme of this top conference in our field reflected connections that information systems make, just as the conference location has linked peoples, cultures and civilizations over several millennia, as the gateway between Europe and the Middle East and Asia.
On Friday, we were super happy to welcome Prof. Rod Brodie and his doctoral student Julia Feherer in Nürnberg. After meeting at the international workshop "Forum on Markets and Marketing (FMM2016) in Venice earlier this week, they came to Nürnberg right away, to follow up on our discussions. Prof. Brodie (Professor of Marketing at University of Auckland Business School) and Julia Fehrer (doctoral candidate at Auckland Business School and Universität Bayreuth) are working on customer and actor engagement.
Organised as an interactive and interdisciplinary workshop, the 2nd Service Systems Forum took place in Venice in the historic Palazzo Pesaro-Papafava, from June 12-13. Dr. Dr. Albrecht Firtzsche and Dr. Julia Jonas did not only present some of their research at the Forum, but also engaged in and enjoyed the vivid discussions on the future of Internet of Things and service ecosystem research. #SSFV16
This year's EURAM conference took place in Paris - and Wi1 was engaged in a number of sessions: Prof. Kathrin Möslein had the pleasure to meet European doctoral students at the Doctoral colloquium before the main conference even started, and held a workshop on "Open Innovation Laboratories: Platforms for Collaborative Management Research?" together with Prof. John Bessant, Prof. Angela Roth and Dr. Frank Danzinger.
As part of the joint NEMODE project, Cambridge Service Alliance has published a white paper called" Facilitating co-creation in living labs: The JOSEPHS study" available at www.cambridgeservicealliance.eng.cam.ac.uk.
