21st Innovation Forum
Innovative/Subversive – The Edge as a Place of Innovation

Prof. Dr. Günther Ortmann

Where and how does something new arise?
A possible answer: At the edges. In free spaces. In niches. In startups and innovation labs. In any case far removed from all that is old, outmoded, molded in habits, and that is put into question, endangered, infiltrated and modified as a result of innovation – in other words wherever confrontation with old structures of power arises. Is this correct? And if so, why?

The Innovation Forum has become successfully established as a platform of dialog between innovative research and practical application in enterprises, and is now to be held for the 21st time in autumn 2021.
