Management of resources

Resources – natural, human, financial and informational resources – are the foundation of economic activity. Their availability or shortage determines growth and development. Asymmetries in their distribution and privatisation caused by economic parties trigger strategic behaviour.

Management of resources aims at the efficient use of resources in economic systems, on a societal as well as corporate level. Economic analyses and contributions focus on the growth and development of regions, sustainable environmental and energy policies and management, production and logistics within value-added chains, the design of educational and training systems as well as efficient information systems and their management.
