On Monday and Tuesday this week we welcomed a group of mostly German professors in Technology and Innovation Management from Darmstadt, Bonn, Hannover, Berlin, Münster and Kiel for the annual Hauschildt Innovation Symposium (also known as the Hauschildt Schüler Treffen).
I was very pleased to host this year’s symposium with Hermann Hauser as keynote speaker, who shared his rich experience with the group on the ICT, computer and software industry and the role of the Cambridge cluster. His talk was followed by a trip to the Bradfield Centre at the Cambridge Science Park, kindly hosted by Jeanette Walker, the Science Park’s director. The first day came to a close after a dinner with long lasting discussions at Christs‘ College. During the second day we visited the University’s Maxwell Centre, where Aga and Alexandra provided two excellent talks on the idea of the Maxwell Centre and its mission as well as the Impulse programme for Tech Innovators.
