The new sponsor of the purely industry-financed, application-oriented doctoral model of the Graduate School of Logistics is Infineon Technologies AG. In the future, the stock corporation will expand its research and development through an individual scholarship in cooperation with the TU Dortmund University. The focus will be on customer benefits and the improvement of the so-called customer journey.

The first scholarship is to be advertised this year and, if possible, filled. The planned dissertation will then focus on gaining insights from company data using state-of-the-art analysis methods from statistics, data science and economics in the semiconductor industry. Experienced experts from the company and a talented young scientist will then form an agile team for the direct transfer of the latest findings into practice. The overall project, which will run for three years, is linked to the logistics and IT innovation ecosystem at the Dortmund science location.

Infineon Technologies AG is the largest semiconductor manufacturer in Germany and one of the ten largest worldwide. The company offers semiconductor and system solutions with a focus on energy efficiency, mobility and security. “Ready for mission future”, the stock corporation builds on forward-looking technologies and aims to make life easier, safer and greener. To promote young talent and for a close connection to the latest research in the field of logistics and IT, the sponsorship of a scholarship in GSofLog was a logical next step.
