Ecosystems for Innovation and Implementation

Dr. Gertraud Leimüller explains in this video how universities need to leverage their ecosystems.

Successful innovation requires an ecosystem – we should always follow the rule “never innovate alone”.

Therefore, we have collected a few very important points on successful innovation and here you will learn about how universities need to leverage their ecosystems. You don’t know what is meant by that? No worries, we will explain it to you in detail. As a teaser, we can say that they should interlink with other ecosystem players on various stages in the research process – think about agenda setting, designing the research and disseminating and implementing results!

Now we get to a very exciting positive outlook on how universities could and – in our view should – evolve in the future. The next video will describe a vision for the future of universities and their positive role in society, embracing new forms of research, teaching, and knowledge transfer.
