Interdisciplinary Award for New Approaches in Quality and Integrated Management

What does a lived and accepted Integrated Management System of the future look like? Whether technical, personnel or organizational approach - anyone who deals with this topic as a part of a research project can apply for the ConSense ScientificAward until August 30, 2019. The interdisciplinary ConSense ScientificAward 2019 is aimed at young academics, who, as part of their bachelor, master, engineering diploma, PhD or MBA thesis in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, have dealt with issues that promote a lived and accepted management system. The thesis must be written in German. This year we are offering this interdisciplinary award for the third time.

With the ConSense ScientificAward, we want to emphasize the vitality and acceptance of quality management on the one hand and also offer graduates a forum to present their work to an expert audience and to exchange ideas with like-minded people on the other hand.

To be entitled to participate, it is sufficient to submit a final thesis (bachelor, master, engineering diploma, PhD or MBA) that was or will be published in Germany, Austria or Switzerland between August 2017 and August 2019. 

The papers should focus on the lived and accepted management system and can cover following topics: quality management, integrated management systems, risk management, key figures management, skill management, process management, training management or knowledge management and data protection management in the context of integrated management systems.

A high-quality, independent jury consisting of Prof. Dr. Mendling (Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration - WU Vienna and board member of the Society for Process Management), Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rosenbaum (Dresden University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering) and Dr.-Ing. Sommerhoff (DGQ) will evaluate theses submitted to us.
