In this series of videos, the Communication and Public Relations department presents six academics from a variety of disciplines who are either junior professors or who head a group of junior researchers. The range of subjects they cover is a wide one: How did our universe come into being? How does Islam view animal welfare and environmental ethics? In addition to research topics, we will also be looking at what motivates researchers personally. What led them to their particular subject? What do they find fascinating about it? And what are the still unanswered questions in their subject?
In this portrait, Philipp Schäpers introduces himself. As a junior professor, he heads the Psychology of Entrepreneurship unit and is part of the cluster of professors at REACH. In his research, he deals with the question of which personal characteristics play a role in founding, how companies play suitable employees and what role diversity plays in human resource management.
