02: Innovation for social changes – equal opportunities in a digital era

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The change from an industrial to a knowledge society is characterized by a paradigm shift of the concept of innovation, but also of the innovation system. Until recently, innovation was primarily targeted to scientific and technology-based developments and the marketing of products and procedures, whereas in the future social innovations will come to the fore. An open and innovation-friendly environment can only be created by interdisciplinary approaches.
The interaction of education, science and innovation within the knowledge triangle is a model of action to implement innovative change in a sustainable way. This working group will deal with the interactions within the knowledge triangle with regard to social changes and equality of opportunities.
