Jürgen Janovsky is professor of Business Management at Pforzheim University with concentrations in Innovation and International Management. He studied Administrative Sciences and Social Science at the universities in Constance and London earning a doctoral degree in Innovation Management at the University of Constance. Research stays at the Paris Dauphiné University and at the French Ministry of Finance were followed by his career at an economic research institute in Paris and his work in risk financing for the Société Générale.
After that period Jürgen Janovsky worked for two international consulting firms in Germany and France focusing on economic development for national and international organizations such as the OECD, the United Nations, the European Commission, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEPAL), the European Investment Bank and the World Bank.

Mr Janovsky was entrusted with projects in about 40 different countries. Long-term stays were performed in France (4 years), Spain (2) and Latvia (1).

Since 2008 Jürgen Janovsky carried out studies on the internationalization of the German healthcare system. He worked for organizations such as the KfW, the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), the BDI and numerous private firms to survey possibilities of cooperation
between the state and the economy for modernizing healthcare infrastructures in developing and emerging nations.
During that time he was also involved in diverse research funding projects of the European Commission developing new models for maritime goods transport and evaluating outcome assessments for projects in European research policy. He worked as evaluator at the European Investment Bank in North Africa and helped to develop regional expertise centers on climate
change in 15 African states with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and KfW.
In Spain, Jürgen Janovsky participated in numerous measures to promote innovation for the central government and the regional government of Galicia, including the development of an innovation portal and the modernization of the timber industry.
During the past five years, Professor Janovsky supervised many projects in various Master programs. His clients include numerous international companies such as Bosch, Bechtle, Mann & Hummel, Merck and various subsidiaries of the Daimler Group.
