21 Oct Driving German Innovation. The role of incubator organisations in the promotion of hightech academic spin-offs

National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech)
2012
Germany needs innovation. New high-tech solutions provide sustainable responses to fundamental changes in society such as an aging population, greater urbanisation, climate change and the evolution of renewable energies. They ensure prosperity and economic growth. Global competition also drives the demand for popular technological exports bearing the label “made in Germany”. In addition, Germany’s lack of natural resources has led to the development of a knowledge-driven economy with a high demand for continuous innovation.

21 Oct Technological Sciences Discovery – Development – Responsibility

National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech)
2013
What are the technological sciences? What are their characteristics and what sets them apart from other scientific disciplines? How did the technological sciences become established and what role do technology and the technological sciences play in our society? Despite their importance to our society, the technological sciences have hitherto been largely neglected by traditional scientific research. Moreover, the people working in the technological sciences have themselves given little thought to the principles and fundamental questions of their discipline. acatech provides advice on strategic science and engineering issues to policymakers and the public. In order to do this effectively, we also need to examine our own discipline. With this acatech IMPULS Paper the National Academy of Science and Engineering wants to encourage discussion of the technological sciences as a knowledge system both within and outside of acatech.

21 Oct Technology Outlook

Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW)
2015
Switzerland has a significant industrial sector today, which contributes almost 20 percent to the country’s gross domestic product. If we look at the next five to ten years, however, new technologies and processes are already emerging, the mastery of which will be fundamental to the success of Swiss industry. SATW has compiled the Technology Outlook which takes up these technological challenges and shows their relevance to Swiss Industry. For the Technology Outlook, experts from an academic and industrial background analysed comparable reports from major economic powers and compared international trends in the Swiss export industry. This revealed that certain key technologies will be crucial for the success of all sectors. These technologies have been illuminated with the help of industry representatives in a context where they should enable the breakthrough of essential innovations. Clear recommendations for decision-makers in the political and economic world conclude the outlook.
