Get to know us

The Research Center Finance & Information Management (FIM) is an internationally recognized research institution, which together with the project group Business & Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT) uniquely combines research, practice and teaching at the interface of financial management, information management and business informatics.

At our offices in Augsburg and Bayreuth, a dynamic and diverse team of over 70 doctoral candidates, over 130 research assistants, post-doctoral researchers and professors work on current research topics in business informatics. Our passion, creativity and performance-oriented work ethic motivates us every day to drive society and economy forward through new digital business models and innovations.

Our research and development work at the Research Center FIM is based on three principles that describe the strength of our organisation:
Innovation – Holistic approach – Interdisciplinary. These help us to achieve decisive competitive advantages and thus form the basis for our success. Accordingly, they are deeply anchored in our culture and the behaviour of every employee.

Innovation

Development of innovative and unique solutions for individual problems for our customers and partners.

Holistic approach

Comprehensive and continuous support of our customers and partners up to the successful introduction of the solution approach.

Interdisciplinarity

Interdisciplinary knowledge through interdisciplinary teams with a focus on business administration, business informatics, industrial engineering and management as well as finance and information management.

About us and our work culture

  • What we value?
  • How we work?
  • What makes us different?

The five values of our FIM-culture.

Responsibility

Responsibility

For us, responsibility means to be open, honest, fair and helpful and to commit ourselves to a cause. Furthermore, responsibility for us means to admit mistakes, and to search for solutions together.

Sustainability

Sustainability

The well-being of our employees is very important to us, which is why we want to promote the motivation and health of our employees in the long term. We are only satisfied when everyone is happy, healthy and enjoys their work.

Initiative

Initiative

Our way of working is based on trust and a lot of responsibility for each individual, which is why active participation and independent work is of great importance to us. Because we believe that the commitment of each individual makes a decisive contribution to our success.

Performance

Performance

We have high standards for our approaches and output and strive to continuously improve as an organization and team. Therefore, we trust each other to fulfill our tasks in a motivated, goal-oriented and responsible manner.

Coaching

Coaching

We work according to the motto of being encouraged and challenged. For this reason, we would like to support every employee with our coaching concept and targeted competence development and together we will bring them to their best performance.

These four ways of working are important to us in our cooperation.

Feedback

Feedback

We have an open feedback culture, regardless of hierarchy or experience. In keeping with our motto of encouraging and being challenged, we believe that we can develop ourselves primarily through feedback and therefore value honest and constructive feedback.

Communication

Communication

We get to the heart of the matter, communicate in a targeted and clear manner. This enables us to work together efficiently and exchange and pass on our knowledge.

Flat hierarchies

Flat hierarchies

Our work culture encourages our employees to work in a self-organized and responsible manner without having a direct supervisor. We want to offer every employee the chance to take responsibility for a team or project and to grow.

Teamwork

Teamwork

We see ourselves as one big team with a common goal and therefore like to share our knowledge and benefit from mutual support. Almost every task is handled within a team and consists of a colourful mix of research assistants and doctoral candidates at both locations.

This distinguishes us from other employers.

Life cycle

Life cycle

During their work here at FIM, the research assistants and doctoral candidates go through a life cycle in which they take on a wide variety of tasks in the organization. This ensures a holistic education that takes individual interests into account.

Coaching concept

Coaching concept

Each new research assistant and doctoral candidate is assigned an experienced coach who not only listens to their questions, but also follows their development and provides specific suggestions for further development potential.

Team spirit

Team spirit

With us, team spirit goes beyond work. Whether at running events or when we play volleyball together after work, we always find enough people for a team. Of course, we also do not miss out on joint evenings and regularly organize get-togethers.

Diversity

Diversity

We place great emphasis on diversity in our workforce, including professional equality of all genders. For this reason we have, for example, a working group "Female FIM", which is explicitly concerned with the promotion of women in research.

Reconciling family & career

Reconciling family & career

By offering flexible working hours and the possibility to work temporarily from a different location, we want to enable our employees to combine family and career.

Events

Events

It is important to us to link our locations and research areas as closely as possible, which is why we regularly organize research seminars. There we exchange information about our current research projects and work. In addition to professional events, however, the fun of a joint Christmas or summer party is never neglected.
