The Technology Foresight & University Hub group coordinates and promotes cooperation between Fraunhofer INT and universities. This includes the supervision of Bachelor’s, Master’s and doctoral theses. Topics of these papers usually have a technological/scientific and a methodological component. Past examples can illustrate this nicely:
- Bachelor’s thesis on “Bibliometric investigation of the volume of publication from Germany on SARS-CoV-2” (scientific topic: coronavirus; methodology: bibliometrics)
- Master’s thesis with the title “Trend research on hydrogen fuel cells and battery-based drives, and associated use-case-specific mobility concepts (technological topic: future mobility using the example of drives; methodology: various methods of trend research)
- Doctoral thesis on “Scientific support for an innovation laboratory” (focus on the methodology)
This doctoral thesis is an example of a paper that focuses on the methodological aspect. As long as these two components (or a focus on a particular methodology) are present, we will certainly have a topic that can be worked on in cooperation with the institute.
We are happy to help and support these theses and look forward to further positive collaborations in the future.
