Innovation & Entrepreneurship Seminar

The Max Planck Innovation & Entrepreneurship Seminar Series of the Department for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research, formerly Brown Bag Seminars, was established in 2013. Since then, the seminars have grown into a well-known research seminar series in Munich’s research environment and beyond. The seminars usually take place once a week and are open to members of the Institute as well as to external researchers and students. Since the start in 2013, the series has hosted more than 240 guest speakers.
