Der Einfluß der Kultur auf die Einstellungen zu Unternehmensgründungen (German Edition)
Darauf liegt der Fokus des Bachelorstudiengangs B. Immer mehr Unternehmen sehen ihre Wachstumschancen im Ausland und richten sich in einer globalisierten Wirtschaftswelt international aus. In unserer weltweit vernetzten Wirtschaft bestimmen Innovationen zunehmend den Wettbewerb und somit auch den Unternehmenserfolg. Marken und Kundenbeziehungen strategisch aufbauen und diese erfolgreich am Markt zu platzieren, das sind zentrale Aufgaben eines Crossmedia-Managers. Die betriebswirtschaftliche, arbeitsmarktpolitische, soziale und personelle Bedeutung von betriebs- und kommunikationspsychologischen Arbeits- und Berufsfeldern hat in den vergangenen 20 Jahren stark zugenommen: Warum sind Menschen wie sie sind und warum verhalten sie sich so?

The comment responds to a commentary accompanying the Tilman and Clark article on how diet links environmental and human health Tilman and Clark in Nature , , Stehfest in Nature , These case studies serve to illustrate a broader analysis of patterns in the global biomass trade.
Author Andreas Mayer from SEC commented that "The current expansion of agricultural lands in the global South puts massive pressure on local populations that are often threated with losing their livelihoods. This report aims to reveal the biophysical conditions and structural drivers of these conflicts and thus to identify conflict potentials that result from the dominant model of industrialized agricultural production". Which Came First, People or Pollution? Its vision is of a knowledge-based Europe turning to green growth via innovation, which presents opportunities for the agricultural and forest-based sectors.
Sustainable production of renewable resources will be needed, with the conversion of these resources and waste streams into value added products, such as food, feed, bio-based products and bioenergy. Even though we currently lack a transparent and common understanding of the definition of a bioeconomy, we require improved tools and assessment methodologies to ensure that this intensified use of renewable biological resources is done sustainably. A Visual History Approach to the Environmental History of the Alps Originally developed as a means of everyday communication, postcards were used by tourists to send holiday greetings to the significant others at home.
Starting point of this project is John Urry's notion of commercial photography as "desire-producing knowledge-machine". The photographer created a stereotype of Alpine winter sport landscapes by selecting what was worth seeing and not worthy of being seen. The studied landscape stereotypes refer to a desirable relationship between environment and society.
While they were constructed by few photographers, countless peoples' choices were influenced by them. The project is financed by the Vorarlberger Landesregierung Provincial government of the province Vorarlberg, Austria. MISO - A model of material stocks and flows in the global metabolic transition Understanding global patterns and trajectories of socio-economic metabolism is of key importance to develop effective policies to reduce society's resource demand and for the transition towards a more sustainable industrial metabolism.
This project develops a dynamic integrated model of material inputs, stocks and outputs MISO. Using an existing database of global material use we provide a comprehensive estimate of historic stocks and stock related flows and calculate resource use scenarios for In its retrospective part, the project investigates the evolution of global socio-economic material stocks and flows since , applying a dynamic top-down modelling approach and taking uncertainties into account.
The results serve as basis for an analysis of global patterns of stocks and flows and their development during the metabolic transition. In the prospective part of the project we use the developed model and the insights from the analysis of historical stock-flow dynamics to calculate scenarios for the future development of material demand, stocks and waste production.
This yields insights how changes in inflows, in average lifetimes of stocks and in recycling rates interact and how they determine future demand for virgin materials and waste production. The outcomes of the project contribute to the advancement of the understanding of the ongoing metabolic transition. They provide new insights into potentials and limitations for a circular economy of high significance for sustainability science and policy makers.
Climate change will not only alter the pool of plant and animal species capable of thriving in a specific area, it will also force land owners to re-consider their land use decisions. Such changes in land-use practices may have major additional effects on local and regional species composition and abundance.
The LUBIO project focuses on the anticipated systemic feedbacks between climate change, land owner's decisions on land use, land-use change, and changes in biodiversity patterns during the coming decades in a regional context which integrates a broad range of land use practices and intensity gradients. An integrated socioecological model is designed and implemented, consisting of three principal components: This model is used to generate scenarios of future land-use decisions of landowners under climate change and, eventually, the combined effects of climate and land use changes on biodiversity.
Model development of the ABM is supported by a participatory process intended to collect regional and expert knowledge through a series of expert interviews, a series of transdisciplinary participatory modelling workshops, and a questionnaire-based survey targeted at regional farmers. Carbon Stubaital - Climate extremes and land-use change: It is expected that in the coming decades the return intervals and severities of extreme droughts will increase substantially and may result in the passing of thresholds of ecosystem functioning, potentially causing legacy effects, which are so far poorly understood.
Observational evidence suggests that different land cover types forest, grassland are differently influenced by extreme drought, but there is a lack of knowledge whether and how future, increasingly severe climate extremes will affect their concurrent and lagged responses, as well as land-use decisions determining future shifts in land cover. In the proposed project we aim to understand how extreme summer drought affects carbon and water dynamics of mountain ecosystems under different land uses, and to analyse implications for ecosystem service provisioning.
Overall, we hypothesize that land-use change alters the effects of extreme summer drought on ecosystem processes and the related services. The proposed study will be located at the LTSER long term socio-ecological research site Stubai Valley, building on and integrating results from previous and ongoing national and European project. It will thus provide a profound baseline for understanding drought responses and legacy effects on biogeochemical processes in mountain ecosystems and the consequences for land-use decisions and ecosystem service provisioning. BACI - Detecting changes in essential ecosystem and biodiversity properties - towards a Biosphere Atmosphere Change Index The alarming rate of biodiversity loss and ecosystem transitions make it clear that new strategies are required to sustain functioning of the coupled ecological-societal system.
Existing space data archives and data streams from the ESA Sentinels, offer unprecedented opportunities to provide rapid, high quality indicators necessary for informed management of key ecosystem services. Yet, it remains largely unclear how space and ground-based observations can be optimally integrated to generate products required by end user communities Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, By fusing extensive expertise on optical and radar remote sensing, ground data on ecosystem state and function, "big data" scientists, and active participation of user groups, BACI will advance this integration.
BACI will translate space data to new variables not directly observable from space that encode ecosystem functional properties and status metrics. This will empower concepts of "essential biodiversity variables". Advanced machine learning methods will be employed to reveal new and fundamental relationships between space observations and ecosystem status. BACI will incorporate a wide range of original data and downstream data products specifically targeting needs for early-warning systems, including a novel "Biosphere-Atmosphere Change Index".
We will prioritize selected key European and African regions now undergoing massive societal-ecological transformations, offering perspective towards operational assessments. Overall, BACI will advance usage of European space data to monitor relevant vegetation traits, status, and ecosystem functioning. By capitalizing on existing datasets, we will prototype new algorithms to rapidly implement these metrics and thus space-to-ground integration of the new ESA Sentinels. ClimBHealth - Climate and health co-benefits from changes in urban mobility and diet: The project focuses on changes in urban mobility and diet in Austria, two areas highly relevant for both climate and health.
The study integrates climate, health and economic effects to assess their combined efficiency of selected climate mitigation measures. Basically, both areas follow the same methodological approach: After the definition of baseline and measures potential climate effects in terms of potential reductions in GHG emissions and potential health effects in terms of reduction of "disability adjusted life years" DALYs of the selected measures are estimated. The results are used for the economic assessment of the question to what extent costs of climate mitigation measures of the two focal areas could be offset by costs saved via health e.
In this way, we will assess the net cost effects of climate mitigation measures for the public budget. Finally the project aims for an integrated assessment that summarizes climate, health and economic effects in both quantitative and qualitative terms. The project aims at fostering decision making and social acceptance.
Sustainable Care - Nursing students explore potentials for Sustainable Care In the light of the demographic transition and ever-scarcer resources, the question of how the care of vulnerable persons is and should be organized in the future is becoming an increasingly pressing societal challenge. Against this background, the project deals with potentials for sustainable care in hospitals.
The project promotes an approach of care with respect and dignity of patients - particularly of older, seriously ill, and dying patients as well as people with dementia. Furthermore the project's approach addresses the responsible handling of ecological, social and financial resources in hospitals. We thus combine two approaches from two separate fields of research: Palliative Care and socioecological sustainability research.
The project aims at contributing to a greater awareness of future actors of the health care system for the possibilities and conditions of a "caring society". To face these challenges the project team is supported by an interdisciplinary scientific advisory board and by accompanying research. The project is carried out with both classes of the same grade more than 50 nursing students as school-autonomous special focus of this year group. It is thus completely integrated in teaching and interdisciplinary in character. The collaboration with the students will start in January with an initial workshop in the school.

Course information online Detailed information can be found on our website: Helmut Haberl acted as coordinating lead author for the chapter on climate-change mitigation and adaptation to climate change in agriculture, forestry, water management and biodiversity conservation; Veronika Gaube was lead author and Christoph Plutzar contributing author for the same chapter.
Willi Haas and Ulli Weisz were lead authors for chapter climate change in Austria and impacts on anthroposphere. After having worked in the Chemical Science Department in CNRS , she changed her research interests towards Environmental History in order to investigate environmental impacts of increasing industrialization and urbanization in France during the 19th and 20th centuries. Her research mainly focuses on environmental degradation and its perception and management by several actors e.
Currently, she works on the Seine river basin, in which she deals with water quality related to the anthropogenic influences. Over a period of seven years Raphael Barth has followed the fate of the Nicobarese in the wake of aid and development after the Tsunami. Approaching the 10th anniversary of the Tsunami, the film offers unique insights into the lost culture of the Nicobar Islands.
In never before seen images, Scientist Simron Jit Singh takes us onto an emotional journey with his video recordings of this mysterious ancient culture. Together with his friends, Journalist Denis Giles and Nicobari Prince Rasheed Yusuf, he is soon confronted with the suffocating pressure of aid and development. They decide to help in a different way: They raise their own money, they start their own aid organisation and they train their own activists from within the Nicobar Islands.
The final minute film version is now ready for launch to mark the 10th anniversary of the tsunami. Interdisciplinary research is important, but in order to find practicable solutions and a way to implement them partners from the relevant environment have to be involved. Each inter- and transdisciplinary team and project is confronted with the challenge to organise the research process in a way that ensures a good understanding as a fundament of cooperation.
Based on thirty years of experience the Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies published a book which concentrates on research practices and reflects, how projects start, proceed and end - in short: The parallel between wild species and domesticated breeds was and is far from complete, however, and the combination of similarity and difference that made Darwin's juxtaposition of wild and domesticated animals both effective and ambiguous still persists.
Indeed, as human impact on the environment has become increasingly pervasive, the reciprocal resonance of these categories has intensified; the animal wild has become more appealing as it has become less available. And as the valence of wildness has altered, the stakes around its definition have increased, with implications for such varied enterprises as livestock breeding and environmental conservation. This talk will explore the shifting understandings of wildness in animals and the practices that these understandings have inspired and shaped over the past three centuries, as well as the shifts in societal values that have had important consequences for people, for other animals, and for the environments that we all inhabit.
In partnership with IDM, the permanent secretariat of the Danube Rector's Conference, the project engages in capacity building for inter- and transdisciplinary sustainability research in the Danube River Basin. Verena Winiwarter is Project Coordinator. In the context of these scenarios, we analyze trade-offs and synergies resulting from competing and cascading uses of biomass, in particular related to greenhouse gas emissions related to land use and its mitigation.
The societal dimension will be examined based on stakeholder interviews and a theoretical analysis of social and political implications of different transformation pathways. A scientific board of researchers from various disciplines who are currently working in the region is holding a series of workshops. In these workshops, researchers present their current activities and identify the actual state of work being carried out in the region.
This state of work is discussed in view of previous conceptual considerations on LTSER research in order to revise existing concepts and, based on an identification of current knowledge gaps, agree upon future research foci. Pasture Intensification The aim of the project is the assessment of output-intensification potentials for global pastures and meadows, e. The role of the Institute of Social Ecology is to develop and provide global, spatially explicit information that allows to identify and assess areas suitable for intensification, compute land productivity e.
The overall goal of the project is to improve the understanding of option spaces for future developments in the livestock sectors, with a particular focus on land use competition and food security at the global scale. Creating a Global MFA Database The purpose of this project is to form an international consortium of prime research institutes involved in establishing national material flow accounts with a global reach, to regularly report on material use and resource efficiency for the globe, for major world regions and for all countries, and to make data available online for academic researchers, government agencies and business leaders.
An information base will be established on the history and state of global material use for all major natural resources - biomass, fossil fuels, metal ores and industrial and construction minerals - with a particular level of detail for specific materials and a set of high level indicators for policy planning and policy evaluation.
The global material flow and resource productivity accounts will be institutionalized under the auspices of the United Nations Environment Programme UNEP , to ensure regular updates and reporting on global trends for natural resource use. We welcome Stefan Nirschl , who started on June 16th in our finance department. Thays Ricarte has complete an LL. M in Environmental Law and is currently a Ph. At our Institute, Thays pursues her interest in ecological economy, energy transition, energy democraticdeficit, social metabolism, the relation of energy poverty and natural resources, environmental justice with the focus of the institute.
His dissertation analyses recent historical trends in California's water footprint, including direct use of local resources as well as indirectly via consumption of traded products such as food and energy. He has published on sustainability issues around California's water footprint and more broadly on the topic of how embodied water in international trade relates to global water sustainability.
At SEC he plans to further develop analytical and theoretical tools relating his work to social metabolism and sustainability transition studies. She is working in crop production and carbon footprinting of major crops in Iran. Apart from agricultural production, Sara is going to examine the whole supply chain including processing, storage and retailer facilities and transport.

Changes on land system dynamics in Germany despite drastic political changes stable since Germany is an especially interesting case study for land system dynamics due to fundamentally changing economic and institutional conditions: A team of researchers of the Institute of Social Ecology in Vienna show, that land system change in Germany was surprisingly gradual, indicating high resilience to the drastic socio-economic and institutional shifts that occurred during the last years.
Management boundaries Changes in the management of existing agricultural land can warm the local climate to an extent similar to that resulting from the conversion of natural vegetation to farmland, according to research published in Nature Climate Change. These findings demonstrate the challenges of meeting growing food demand without exacerbating climate change. A team of scientists, including Karlheinz Erb of Institute of Social Ecology in Vienna found out, that the net effect - when all cooling and heating influences were accounted for - was localized warming of around 1.
Consequently, the intensification of agriculture to meet growing food demand will have direct climatic implications that should be considered alongside greenhouse gas emissions when weighing up different policy options. Climate Change Concluding four years of intense scientific collaboration by hundreds of authors from around the world, this report responds to the request of the world's governments for a comprehensive, objective and policy neutral assessment of the current scientific knowledge on mitigating climate change.
The report has been extensively reviewed by experts and governments to ensure quality and comprehensiveness. It sets out the technological, economic and institutional requirements and associated risks of climate change policies at the global, national and sub-national level, investigates mitigation measures for all major sectors, and assesses investment and finance issues. It allows users to search and filter across fields and to browse by commodity, company, country and type of conflict.

Once the idea for a product is available, you should quickly test the product and bring it to market. Follow the Lean Startup principle and try to keep everything as lean as possible and see if the product is accepted. Listen to your target group, because it is not important that you like the product, but your target group. The courage to go on the market with a not quite finished product will be rewarded.
The team around you is one of the essential success factors. If everyone pulls together and has a goal in mind, success can be built up sustainably. This applies not only to the founding team itself, but also to the future employees to the same extent. If you employ the wrong employees, the company will not be able to take the development steps.
It all depends on the team. I am of the opinion that it is no longer only in Berlin that a successful and sustainable start-up can be established. The Ruhr area also has potential and the bigger and better known the scene becomes, the easier it will be to find potential employees and colleagues there. Das Tool bietet verschiedene Module, mit dem am die eigene Webseite verbessern, gezielt Content produzieren und somit Sichtbarkeit aufbauen kann.
Als Entreprenuer habe ich einige Unternehmen aufgebaut und erfolgreich verkauft. So konnte ich meine Expertise in den vergangen Jahren sukzessive erweitern. PageRangers ist in den vergangenen 2,5 Jahren sehr stark gewachsen — alles eigenfinanziert und aus dem eigenen Cashflow. Ein wesentlicher Erfolgsfaktor ist, es einfach zu machen. Wenn die Idee zu einem Produkt erst einmal vorhanden ist, solltest du das Produkt schnell testen und auf den Markt bringen. Der Mut auch mal mit einem nicht ganz fertigen Produkt an den Markt zu gehen, wird belohnt. Das Team um dich herum ist eines der wesentlichen Erfolgsfaktoren.
Wenn alle an einem Strang ziehen und ein Ziel vor Augen haben, kann Erfolg nachhaltig aufgebaut werden. Auf die Mannschaft kommt es an. Ich bin der Auffassung, dass man nicht mehr nur in Berlin ein erfolgreiches und nachhaltiges Startup etablieren kann. Gerrit Hellwig has worked in various management positions in the energy industry during his career and knows the needs of companies as well as the opportunities offered by the energy market in the context of digitization through the successful implementation of numerous digitization projects.
As the managing director and co-founder of DEC, he is the originator of the DEC Direkt platform and is responsible for their conception as well as their development. I realized at some point that you do not have to accept anything around you, but you are able to design your own solutions that are better than what you have today.
In addition, I noticed quite early that I perceive opportunities and potentials differently than the people around me. From then on, I knew that I wanted to solve problems and implement new ideas. To further develop and promote the platform even faster. On the one hand to know and understand why some business models are successful and some do not or when they provide real benefits. Because a startup can only be successful in the long term if it creates a benefit for all involved players.
And you have to have strong stamina and a very high frustration threshold. Get the right partners, supporters and employees on board. If this package does not fit, the startup will not succeed. All parties need to understand and live startups. And do not be afraid to do something wrong.
It is much worse to regret something you did not do than to have done something wrong. I am always happy to see and experience that the Ruhr area is a vibrant and ever-growing startup region. Meanwhile, it is also noticeable that companies are increasingly concerned with this topic and trying to understand what makes successful startups. But companies still have a very long way to go here. After all, most companies still only encourage new ideas when they fit into their own comfort zone or route. There is pent-up demand in my view at seed financing.
Not only more capital should be available, but also a professional accompaniment of the founders accompanying with the capital. Die Plattform noch schneller weiter zu entwickeln und bekannt zu machen. Denn es geht nicht darum Dinge einfach nur anders zu machen, es geht darum Dinge besser zu machen.
Wenn dieses Package nicht passt, wird das Startup keinen Erfolg haben. Und habt keine Angst davor etwas falsch zu machen. Es ist viel schlimmer etwas zu bereuen was man nicht getan hat, als etwas nicht richtig getan zu haben. Unternehmen haben hier aber noch einen sehr langen Weg vor sich. Nachholbedarf gibt es aus meiner Sicht beim Seed-Financing. Start-up ist kein Sprint, sondern Marathon.
