Three New Professors – One Topic

KLU is developing new Digital Transformation partnerships

The digital transformation is presenting logistics with many issues. In order to find the right answers, KLU has entered into an interdisciplinary partnership with three top institutions: Bucerius Law School (BLS), the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI), and the Institute for the World Economy (IfW).

As a visible sign of collaboration, three professors who also carry out research and teach at the relevant partner institution have been appointed to KLU. Dimka Karastoyanova is Professor of Data Science and Business Intelligence at KLU and also researches the subjects at HPI.  Responsible for the Digital Economy field, Professor Christina Raasch commutes between KLU and the IfW. Professor Catharina Maracke is responsible for the subject of IT and Data Law at both KLU and BLS.

“The mission of developing the Key Competence Area of Digital Transformation further with the colleagues at KLU is exciting and I look forward to it very much,” said Raasch. Maracke believes that synergies among the subjects will be beneficial: “The institutional partnership will create interfaces between the fields of law, economics, IT, and logistics.” “Together, we can drive ideas and projects forward,” added Karastoyanova.

The professors agree that the subject of digitalization is currently receiving widespread attention from the economy, society, and political representatives. However, in many areas research on digitalization is still in its infancy. “Our research at KLU can contribute to leveraging the digital revolution to the benefit of companies and the overall economy,” said Raasch.
