You want to work with us?

For us expertise is as important as justified outspokenness and an uncomplicated character.  We also welcome innovative thinking, methodical competences, co-operational and communication skills. 



We deliver important working results in science and practice through our published working papers. For one thing, we publish the works of our staff members or project reports. For another thing, HIE-RO co-operates with the Chair of Business Education and its two publication series: Contributions to regional and structural development (Rostocker Beiträge zur Regional- und Strukturforschung) and also position papers on economic and human resource development (Rostocker Arbeitspapiere zu Wirtschaftsentwicklung und Human Resource Development).
