Interdisciplinarity and Matching

Interdisciplinary composition is a great success factor for a lot of start-ups. Due to an extensive know-how and the capability to see business problems from different angles, the success rate of such businesses is significantly higher compared to homogenously staffed start-ups.

The formation of a network among business students, engineers, natural scientists, and students of arts, social sciences and the humanities offers an immense potential for innovation. However, interdisciplinary behavior does not occur on its own as the natural rejection among different disciplines works against it. Thus, it has to be actively induced.

eSPARK investigates key success factors of the collaboration among academic disciplines. Also it explores ways to remove interdisciplinary obstacles and to increase multidisciplinarity within start-up teams.
