Competence Center Ecosystems

Applied research for innovative solutions in practice

With our international network of selected universities, we have been developing scientifically sound reference models together with our customers from the financial industry for around 20 years. We show the potentials of new technologies and promote the practice-focused exchange within the community. With prototypes we demonstrate the applicability of the results.

Our Topics

Business Models & Ecosystems







Companies pool their resources and, supported by digital technologies, jointly fulfill an overarching core value proposition. Ecosystems are collaborative business models that involve the customer in the creation of services. Together with our practice partners, we design and model these ecosystems and thus help companies identify or structure and manage the ecosystems that are relevant to them.
