On the 17th of May a group of dedicated innovation practitioners met at Bosch Engineering Center in Linz, Austria. Large companies like Bosch and Fronius were also present as well as high-tec SMEs like Tecpond. The focus of this Science2Society outreach activity was to discuss current good practices for Technology- and Innovation Management and what approaches work most efficient to transfer such knowledge from academia to industry. “Knowledge transfer” is one of the seven interaction mechanisms Science2Society is focusing on in it piloting activities.
