About 300 students, scholars and professors of the participating universities attended the Innovation Seminar series.
The Innovation Seminar format aims at taking German entrepreneurs to universities abroad, where they present innovative products and procedures. International scholars and researchers working in this field are welcome to offer their opinions and contribute the valuable insights they have generated over the course of their academic careers. Moreover, university students as consumers, future experts and decision makers are welcome to contribute their perspectives as well. In addition to the topical presentation and discussion sessions, the seminar schedule provides room for networking and the initiation of cooperation projects. The events are realised by the German Energy Solutions Initiative in cooperation with the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (AHKs) and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
Feedback for the events held in the United States was overwhelmingly positive and a number of collaboration plans were discussed during the networking dinner. Over the course of 2018, the Innovation Seminar series will continue with further events at universities all over the world. International researchers are welcome to participate. Further details on dates and places will be published in the event calendar as soon as possible.
