Welcome to the Jackstädt Center

Prof. Dr. Peter Witt spricht am 2. Schumpeter Praxistag über regionale Standortfaktoren

Prof. Dr. Christine Volkmann (Chairwoman of the JC) and Prof. Walter Kümmerle, Ph. D. Prof. Kümmerle hold a lecture on International Entrepreneurship at the "Schumpeter Koloquium" organized by the Jackstädt-center.

The Jackstädt Center’s strategic new profile paves the path for future development and includes themes such as:  Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Economic Change. With the foundation of the  Jackstädt Center, the research capabilities of these important fields are substantially strengthened.

As it follows an interdisciplinary approach the Center’s research activities are diverse and multifaceted. Among other areas, the center researches the personality  of entrepreneurs, strategies for product development and innovation, but also the internationalization of small- and medium-sized firms.

The goal of the interdisciplinary Jackstädt Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Research is to conduct excellent research at an international
level in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation. An important goal is to foster and accompany the transfer of relevant practical questions into business- and economics-related research. Both priorities should lead the Jackstädt
Center to become regionally embedded and internationally visible.
