He comments: ‘In today’s society, it is no longer capital but knowledge that is at a premium. This means that speedy access to an expert is a crucial factor for success.’

Current research issues
What is the nature of the challenges when seeking to regulate the succession in a family business? Can our economy continue to grow indefinitely? How can user-generated innovations have an influence on product development? What trends can be discerned in sustainable architecture? These are some of the questions to which research work at the University of Liechtenstein is currently dedicated.
