10: Technology transfer in European regions

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

In order to secure the competitiveness of Europe as an economic and research location it is not only necessary to be excellent in research but also to carry out technology transfer successfully. In view of an increasingly global production of new knowledge this central task of applied non-university research is facing new problems and challenges. Starting out from the triple helix model of national and regional innovation systems representatives of all three areas (politics, research and industry) will discuss important current topics, instruments and tasks of technology transfer on a European as well as on an Austrian level. In this, we will try to actively combine knowledge gained from participants practical experience with recent scientific results concerning technology transfer.

Dipl.-Ing. Clemens SCHINAGL

JOANNEUM RESEARCH Forschungsgesellschaft mbH, Graz

 Studierte an der Technischen Universität Graz Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen für Maschinenbau. Nach vergleichsweise kurzen Etappen im Pharma- und Industrieanlagenbereich und "Nebenstudien" ("Technischer Umweltschutz"/Technische Universität Graz, "Energieplanung- und Management"/Technische Universität Berlin) landete er 1995 in der Angewandten Forschung bei JOANNEUM RESEARCH. Beratungen, Gutachten und Entwicklungsprojekte zum Technologietransfer führten Schinagl zur Neukonzeption eines Transferansatzes, welcher neben dem zwingenden Einsatz von Kreativitäts- und Lösungsfindungstechniken bei Innovationsberatungen auch diese Techniken selbst zum Forschungsgegenstand macht (i.e. Computer Aided Problem-solving).
