Ever since his final degree in Economics and Cultural Anthropology Prof. Dr. Mark Oelmann has been focussing on network sectors and viewing them from different perspectives (financial sector; strategic business consultancy; consultancy of public institutions; international consultancy). His main focus has always been water supply and wastewater disposal. At the same time he regularly gains inspiration from digressing into other network sectors as well as into the complex area of water resource management. He feels enriched by the combination of his teaching activity with research and consultancy at the Hochschule Ruhr West.
