The current knowledge society is now developing into a science society. More and more technical and social innovations come from the creative environment of colleges, universities and research institutions.

In view of ever-shorter innovation cycles and global competition, they are becoming increasingly important for economic development. Therefore, companies are looking to be close to the scientific community, and to the resulting start-ups surrounding them.

The podium discussion with entrepreneurs, politicians and representatives from the science system aims to illuminate how this process can be organized and promoted meaningfully, in order to optimise the interplay of those involved, and to ensure long-term prosperity.
