IfE be­comes "In­sti­tute for En­tre­pren­eur­ship, In­nov­a­tion, and Sus­tain­ab­il­ity"

(opens in a new window)

The renaming of the IfE was decided by the university management on 7 November. This decision marks a significant development in the mission and research focus of the institute. The IfE will now be expanded in terms of both content and name to include the key research areas of innovation and sustainability.

In spring 2020, the IfE at Neu-Ulm University was founded by Professor Dr. Daniel Schallmo and Professor Dr. Jens Pätzmann. Since October 2023 Professor Dr. Jens Kolb complements the management of the institute. In November 2023, the name was adjusted to "Institute for Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Sustainability" (formerly known as "Institute for Entrepreneurship"). We are a practice-oriented research institute. Therefore, the transfer of research results to companies and institutions as well as national and international networking is particularly important to us. On this page you will find an overview of the institute's team, our partners and regular news on current projects. If you are interested in a cooperation or have a general interest, you will find our contact details at the end of the page.
