Keynote: Transatlantic Perspectives on Emerging Technology Management
Both the U.S. and Germany are world leaders in basic and applied research, yet there are fundamental differences in their approaches to entrepreneurship.
The keynote addressed four questions:
1) University spinoffs have the potential to become high-growth companies, and, in some cases, they create new industries that can change our lives and generate thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of jobs. How are Germany and the US creating and nurturing globally competitive university spinoffs?
2) How can universities and research institutes in the US and Germany accelerate the diffusion of new technologies?
3) What strategies have been successful in acquiring seed money in the US and Germany?
4) What is the role of culture in this process?
