Prof. Dr. Axel Hahn / Prof. Dr. Jürgen Sauer


The Department “System Analysis and Optimization” focuses in research and teaching on the development and optimization of energy-efficient transport and production systems. sauer Current modeling methods and simulations are used to check system comprehension and to evaluate new concepts. With the help of planning and optimization procedures, systems are evaluated and optimized. Various research activities in the field of electromobility are also carried out. Among other things, the multi-agency evaluation system for alternative drive systems (MAMBA) was developed.

Prof. Dr. Jantje Halberstadt


Jantje Halberstadt has been a junior professor for social entrepreneurship at Leuphana University Lüneburg since April 2014. The junior professorship Social Entrepreneurship is part of the Center for Sustainability Management (CSM) of the Faculty of Sustainability and is also a bridge to the Faculty of Economics. Ms. Halberstadt works on the interface between the two disciplines and is therefore part of the EXIST team, works closely with the Entrepreneurship Hub and is a member of the Leuphana Research Center for Entrepreneurship. The junior professorship promotes the commitment of students in the area of ​​social entrepreneurship and is responsible for the Social Change Hub (SCHub), whose student management team is actively supported. Her research focuses on management and entrepreneurship with a special focus on the areas of social entrepreneurship, ecopreneurship and female entrepreneurship. These are also the core of the international cooperation project ICET – International Center for Social Entrepreneurship and Technology with the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Ms. Halberstadt is interdisciplinary interconnected in the scientific community and works as a consultant for different magazines and conferences. In addition, she supports start-ups in particular as a founding member of the pre-incubator Venture Lab e.V. as well as a founding member, Impact Hub Hamburg and as a member of the Social Entrepreneurship Center Nordwest e.V. association.

Prof. Dr. Anna Henkel


Anna Henkel is professor for culture and media sociology at the Leuphana University Lüneburg since 2016.Previously, she was a junior professor for social theory at the University of Oldenburg from 2013 to 2016. Prior to that, she was Postdoctoral Fellow at the Bielefeld Graduate School in History and Sociology at the University of Bielefeld.Anna Henkel studied economics and social sciences at the University of Witten / Herdecke and the Institut d’Études Politiques in Paris. After research stays in Copenhagen she was promoted in 2011. The core of your research approach is the use of social theory in the elucidation of social problems. Sociological theories, such as system theory, theory of praxis, actor theory, or critical theory, are conceived as observational perspectives, from which social phenomena appear differently and are accordingly observed with divergent questions and methods.Empirically, the focus of the work area is in the fields of knowledge and technology research, sustainability research as well as economic and organizational research. Key questions are the attribution of responsibility in modern society, the sociology of the real estate and the sociology of the pharmaceutical. Current research projects under the leadership of Anna Henkel include the interdisciplinary research area “Dimensions of Concern” at the Evangelical Study Center Villigst as well as the project “Reflexive Responsibilisation. Responsible for Sustainable Development” at MWK Niedersachsen / VolkswagenStiftung..

Prof. Dr. Frank Köster


Prof. Frank Köster has been Head of the Department of Automotive at DLR since 2009 and has also been a professor at the University of Oldenburg since 2014. There he is head of the Department of Intelligent Transport Systems at the Department of Computer Science. He is a member of OFFIS in Oldenburg and has also been active for many years in different organizations and committees on the subject of mobility at national and international level (e.g., ERTICO, ERTRAC). Frank Köster is co-applicant of the 2014 approved DFG focal program Cooperative Interacting Automobile. Within the DLR, Frank Köster is a member of the Steering Group’s next-generation Car project, which bundles all DLR activities on the road vehicle sector and is responsible for the project vehicle intelligence and intelligent undercarriages (FIF). FIF is particularly concerned with various topics from the area of ​​cooperative highly automated / fully automatic road vehicles and converts them into prototypes. These vehicles are an integral part of future intelligent transport systems (ITS). The integrated use or the coordinated interplay of a large number of assistance and automation systems is considered the central characteristic of ITS. This influences the instruments to be explored or designed in the framework of the Chair of Intelligent Transport Systems, which, in addition to the widespread approach of human centred engineering, provide support in holistic approaches to the development of ITS.

Current activities in research and teaching relate to the development and application of methods and techniques of software engineering. Wesentliche Essential principles are provided by the graph technique with graph-based (meta-) modeling, graph queries and graph transformations. These techniques are used inter alia in the context of sustainable software development and evolution. The methods and tools developed here are aimed at providing flexible, interoperable and customizable tool chains through the use of service and component orientation. These activities also include the measurement, prognosis and optimization of quality features in software development and evolution. Work on quality improvement is currently focused on optimizing the maintainability and energy efficiency of software systems.

Andreas Winter was involved in the conception and development of the GUPRO framework for program comprehension, in the design of the graph exchange format GXL, the conception and development of the SOAMIG approach to software migration and the conception of the Q-MIG quality management for quality assurance and forecasting in migration projects.

Andreas Winter is a founding member of the GI specialist group “Software Reengineering”, and was until May 2010 the spokesman. He was also a member of the Steering Committee, spokesman for the Steering Committee, Program Chair and General Chair of the European “IEEE Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering”.
