5th BioSC Spotlight

Moving the BioEconomy from mind to market - how can technology and innovation management research contribute?

The fifth event in the “BioSC Spotlight” series took place in Bonn on February 4, 2019. This time the focus was on factors that influence whether a new technology can enter the market, as value chain partners, competitors, public and private standards. Scientists from academia and industry held a total of eight specialist lectures. The World Café „Transfer of bio-based inventions into the market“ offered the opportunity for intense discussion.
