The TUHH's research activities are combined in three fields of competence under the umbrella of the Center for Research and Innovation (ZFI):
Green Technologies that involve the research areas Renewable Energies, Systems - Storage - Grids, and Water and Environmental Technology,
Life Science Technologies that comprise the research fields medical technology, biomaterials, and biochemical and chemical process technology, and
Aviation and Maritime Systems that include the research fields Aeronautical Engineering, Logistics and Mobility, and Maritime Systems and Structures.
This research structure builds on more specific research priorities. These Research Centers are organized in a matrix-like structure and are supported by 10-15 professors each. Each Research Center undertakes to perform a specific service with verifiable criteria within the project duration of four years. The MST forms one of nine Research Centers at the TUHH with the title "Logistics and Mobility for Sustainable Value Creation." Further information can be found here.
Research Field: Innovative Value Creation Networks
The MST's manifold research activities can be summarized under the heading "Innovative Value Creation Networks." The Deanery's most important research areas within this focus are the fields of logistics and supply chain management (including transport) as well as technology and innovation management. In these fields, the areas of risk management and sustainability in particular are examined from different perspectives as essential cross-sectional and multidisciplinary research topics.
Furthermore, there are numerous exciting research projects in other research fields, such as corporate strategy, marketing, controlling, and corporate research, which the individual institutes or several institutes together pursue. You can view each institute's particular research fields directly on the institutes’ homepages.
Research Papers Series
The MST continuously publishes a series of working papers on scientific topics and their practical implications. More information about this series can be found here.
