Innovationen: mehr Ideen, weniger Bürokratie

In Deutschland ansässige Unternehmen zeichnen sich durch eine hohe Innovationsfähigkeit aus. So gibt die Chemie- und Pharmabranche jährlich über zehn Milliarden Euro für Forschung und Entwicklung aus, wurde aber bereits von China überholt. Warum Innovationen kein Selbstläufer sind, erläutert der Direktor am Max-Planck-Institut für Innovation und Wettbewerb Dietmar Harhoff.

Deutschlands digitale Zukunft steht auf dem Spiel

Die deutsche Wirtschaft boomt, Forschung und Entwicklung haben in den vergangenen Jahren erfreulich zugelegt. Doch man sollte sich nicht mit dem Erreichten zufriedengeben, warnt unser Autor, Vorsitzender der Expertenkommission Forschung und Innovation (EFI) der Bundesregierung. Besonders bei der digitalen Infrastruktur und bei Internetangeboten von Behörden und Ministerien hat Deutschland Nachholbedarf. Aber auch die Hochschulen und junge innovative Unternehmen brauchen die Unterstützung der neuen Bundesregierung.

Journalist in Residence Fellowship

Three-month guest stay for a journalist at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition

The Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition is offering journalists the opportunity to be a guest fellow at the Institute for three months. With this fellowship the Institute pursues two aims: to support high-quality journalism in the field of intellectual property and competition law or innovation and entrepreneurship, and to promote the communication of these topics to the public. At the same time, researchers of the Institute will gain insights into how to improve the public communication of the results of scientific research.

The fellowship includes the opportunity to follow a research project in one of the Institute’s departments or in an interdisciplinary research project and also provides journalists with the opportunity to conduct their own research. The journalist-in-residence will be able to sit in on department or Institute meetings, seminars, lectures etc. The journalist’s support liaisons at the Institute will be the Press and Public Relations Officer and a researcher. The journalist is expected to organize an internal colloquium on the topic of journalism and science.

The journalist-in-residence will receive a monthly consideration in the amount of EUR 3,000 for the duration of the fellowship. The Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition will provide a work space and the use of its library resources.

Applications including a CV in table form, proof of extensive journalistic experience, a proposal for a research project to be completed during the stay at the Institute (max. 1 page) and preferred dates for a stay at the Institute may be sent by
