Lennart Fahnenmüller studied a trinational degree in Mechatronics (B.Sc. and B.Eng.) at the Université de Haute-Alsace (Mulhouse, F), the University of Applied Sciences of Northwestern Switzerland (Muttenz, CH) and the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (Lörrach, D). His Bachelor Thesis discussed interfacing IT Systems in railway maintenance. Subsequently, he worked as a systems responsible in European Asset Management and Technology for the freight department of German Railways (DB).
After four years in this field he continued his studies with the Joint Master in Global Innovation Management at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) and Hamburg University of Technology, graduating with an M.Sc. degree in 2017. His main interests throughout these studies were Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Sustainable Innovation. His Master Thesis at TIM discussed the topic of cross-disciplinary collaboration in Cradle-to-Cradle Innovation.
The research project "Large Scale Projects as Drivers of Innovation in Construction" is a cooperative project executed together with HafenCity University Hamburg. The aim is to gain profound insights regarding the role of megaprojects, such as the Elbphilharmonie or the Berlin Central Station, for innovation in the construction industry.
The crossdisciplinary research project is divided into the four sub-projects scrutinising the roles of project integration, customers, designers and the building itself. The sub-project relating to the clients wishes and competencies is executed at TIM, while the other three sub-projects are located at HCU.
Major interfaces with research at TIM exist in the fields of User Innovation and Innovation Processes.
