As part of the virtual conference on April 21, the High-Tech Forum presented its final report to the Federal Minister of Education and Research, Anja Karliczek. The report includes key recommendations for the future innovation strategy in Germany. Key topics include mission-oriented innovation policy, participation as a strategic instrument of innovation policy, resilience and technological sovereignty, agile research, and innovation funding.
In the context of her work as a member of the High-Tech Forum, Prof. Dr. Katharina Hölzle particularly emphasizes the high relevance of the initiative for freedom of technology transfer: "Research in Germany is world-class in many areas. Far too often, however, research results do not find their way into business and society. To turn top-class ideas into real innovations, we need incentives and encouraging framework conditions for spin-offs as well as more recognition for application-oriented research."
The final report can be found in the press section on the HTF website.
