On July 8th at 5 p.m. takes place the IST Distinguished Lecture with David Audretsch: Linking Entrepreneurship to Innovation and Job Creation. This lecture will be broadcast via Zoom.
A world beset by societal and economic challenges seeks new knowledge and ideas championing innovative remedies for a better path forward. An important insight from this past generation of research is that new ideas alone do not suffice to generate the requisite innovation and creativity to overcome such societal challenges. Rather, entrepreneurship plays a key role for the conduit bridging between new thinking and ideas and their implementation and commercialization through innovative activity. In the post-covid globalized era, where innovation goes, employment will follow.
