Innovation Economics at Jacobs University Bremen to explore Local Innovation Systems
Since 2015, Frank Waeltring from Mesopartner has been providing semester seminars at the Jacobs-University Bremen in Germany on innovation economics. The objective is to support the University and the students in their efforts to link theory with real practical local insights. Apart from lecturing sessions, the 30 students prepare to interview innovative companies in the City of Bremen on internal innovation management issues and have to analyse the companies’ interrelation with the local and regional innovation system. Moving from innovation management towards a deeper analysis of a local innovation system is then the task of the second part of the innovation economics course. It is the 3rd year that Mesopartner is providing classes on innovation economics and development economics at the Jacobs University.
