Working Group 11:


Innovative products and services are the motor of the economy. Even in times of demographic change. Therefore we want to address these issues in the new Innovation working group.

  • How can companies increase their ability to innovate, even with a smaller staff?
  • How can innovation best be promoted and supported in small, medium and large companies (KMU) in Germany?

The central focal points are: innovation, KMU and practical implementations. To this end we convene around 4 times per year and try to examine the bigger picture. We have fun developing solutions for increasing the capacity for innovation of the KMUs. We learn from both experts and each other and assess the benefits of our new tools by carrying out pilot tests.
