Think Tank Procurement 4.0
The department Procurement and Finance in Supply Chain Management focuses on researching new technologies and trends for the procurement and finance sector in Supply Chain Management. New insights are developed, evaluated, and then made available to industry as an application-oriented solution. We regularly synchronize our research results and experiences with procurement managers in the industry as part of the Think Tank Procurement 4.0 in cooperation with the BME Association (Bundesverband Materialwirtschaft, Einkauf und Logistik e. V.). We act as a driving force and create a knowledge transfer between research and industry.
In particular, new technology approaches and applications for Procurement 4.0 are discussed, such as digitization strategies and the use of blockchain or artificial intelligence in procurement. Furthermore, the industry partners will present their current digitization projects in procurement and share their experiences and challenges in implementing their projects, as well as further objectives and fields of action for the future.
This regular exchange creates new ideas for both research and industry and offers the opportunity to validate current projects as well as to set new topics in the company’s own working agenda.
