Collaboration: Fresenius University of Applied Science and Can Do develop practice-oriented research projects

The economics and media faculty of Germany’s Fresenius University of Applied Sciences has agreed on a collaboration with Can Do, which specializes in project and resource management. It covers the areas of general teaching and knowledge transfer, with the aim of providing students with a direct link between theory and practice.

Students will benefit from high-quality lectures and internships and the opportunity to acquire tried and tested knowledge, such as the algorithm-based calculation of planning factors and the increasing influence of artificial intelligence in everyday planning processes.

“This collaboration is a way for us to ensure we continue to provide high-quality teaching by inviting practice-oriented and highly specialized lecturers from Can Do,” says Prof. Dr. Lutz Becker, head of Cologne Business School and dean of Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. The benefits of this collaboration are clear. “By providing guest lectures, we are expanding the knowledge we make available to our students. We’re also giving them the opportunity to experience business-related internships,” he adds. An initial joint case study, The Use of Artificial Intelligence in Project Management, will be published shortly (authors: Christian Barbuia and Prof. Dr. Lutz Becker).

With this collaboration and the associated active commitment to guest lectures and internships, Can Do is responding to the call for business to play its part in education and society. “In addition, our participation in thematic teaching and the contacts with interns and volunteers enhances our access to the specialists of tomorrow,” says Jens Steinbicker, CEO of Can Do GmbH. As part of the collaboration, the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences and staff from the people management platform provider Can Do are currently discussing further joint research projects aligned with business practice. “We’re very pleased to be collaborating with the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences, as it is giving us fresh impetus as a technology firm,” adds Steinbicker.
