  • Diskussion großer Themen: Die Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung und wie wir wissenschaftliche Innovatoren fördern können
  • Ideen entwickeln: Wie stellen wir sicher, dass der Wert der Innovation geschätzt und Investitionen getätigt werden

Wie fördern wir Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung? Wer finanziert sie? Fördert Geldmangel Erfindungsreichtum oder wird Innovation gebremst, weil alle auf Nummer sicher gehen? Und wie steht es mit den Innovatoren der Zukunft? Tun wir genug, um ihr Talent zu fördern und zu unterstützen?

In Zeiten schwieriger wirtschaftlicher Bedingungen darf die Innovation nicht geopfert werden. Sie ist das Herzblut der Wissenschaft, Technologie und der Wirtschaft. Der Fokus muss dringend auf die Frage gerichtet werden, wie Innovation am besten gefördert und entwickelt werden kann - heute und in der Zukunft.

Darum versammelt die Innovationsdebatte 2012 - organisiert und finanziert von Astellas Pharma Europe Ltd. - einflussreiche und anerkannte Persönlichkeiten aus der Welt der Wissenschaft, Technologie, Medizin, Technik, Bildung, Regierung, Industrie und aus den Medien, um zu diskutieren, wie die wissenschaftliche Innovation am besten angekurbelt und gefördert werden kann.

Unter dem Vorsitz des Physikers, Autors und Fernsehmoderators Professor Jim Al-Khalili und mit Experten wie dem Nobelpreisträger und Physiker Professor Sir Andre Geim, dem Mitbegründer und ehemaliger Präsident des Technologieunternehmens ARM Tudor Brown, dem Fernsehsprecher und Physiker Professor Brian Cox und dem stellvertretenden Leiter und Leiter der Abteilung für Krebstherapeutik am Institut für Krebsforschung London Professor Paul Workman wird die Innovationsdebatte untersuchen, auf welche Art sich am besten verhindern lässt, dass der aktuelle wirtschaftliche und finanzielle Druck die Innovation für die heutige und für zukünftige Generationen in Gefahr bringt.

Ziel der Innovationsdebatte ist es, wesentliche Themen zu erörtern, positive Schlussfolgerungen zu ziehen und die Agenda nach vorne zu bringen.

Jedermann - Fachleute aus Wissenschaft und Technik, Studenten und die allgemeine Öffentlichkeit - wird Gelegenheit haben, über Online-Medien aktiv an der Innovationsdebatte teilzunehmen, so dass sie weit über die Mauern der Royal Society hinaus reichen wird.

"Die Innovationsdebatte ist eine zeitgemäße Veranstaltung", erklärt Professor Jim Al-Khalili. "Die Welt der Wissenschaft und Technik muss das Wort 'Innovation' selbst für sich zurück erobern. Wie können wir also in der heutigen Zeit der Entbehrung Innovation fördern - und wie stellen wir sicher, dass wir die Innovatoren der Zukunft haben? Wir müssen darüber nachdenken, wie wir die Chancen, dass unsere Wissenschaftler und Techniker innovative Ideen entwickeln, maximieren können und wie die nächste Generation von Wissenschaftlern und Technikern ausgebildet werden sollte."

"Wie jedes andere Unterfangen steht die wissenschaftliche Forschung unter finanziellem Druck - aber was wären die Auswirkungen z.B. einer Senkung der Finanzierung der Grundlagenforschung, nur weil ihr wirtschaftlicher oder sozialer Nutzen nicht unmittelbar ersichtlich ist? Und wie würde die Innovation im Ergebnis darunter leiden? Dies sind die Art von Fragen, die wir bei der Innovationsdebatte erörtern werden."

In der Expertendebatte am 20. November wird es unter anderem um die Frage gehen "Wie gestalten wir die Innovation in Zeiten der Entbehrung?" und "Wie können wir Innovation am besten fördern?"

The most dramatic difference at MWC was an emphasis on presenting wearables as fashion accessories and moving away from the original clunky technology associated with t...

The list of ‘new paradigm’ technologies that now surrounds us appears to be at an all time high. From cloud computing and Big Data analytics to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and the Internet of Things (IoT), today we have to deal with what the industry likes to call ‘paradigm shifts’ at every level of IT. This is disruption; of course, we understand that – change is almost always disruptive.
