G&K Workshop at Berlin Science Week: Nurturing SSHA start-ups

Knowledge transfer from Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts (SSHA) is a topic of growing relevance, the call for “impact” for instance is known all over the place. Other than in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Intellectual Property Rights play a minor role in SSHA transfer. One of the most popular transfer instruments that is highly appreciated by almost every politician are start ups. They do exist in SSHA transfer but there is a request to improve the amount and quality of SSHA start ups. Therefore, the main question of this workshop is: How to nurture SSHA start ups?

The event “Nurturing SSHA start-ups” aims to increase the understanding of specifics of SSHA start-ups. . It is organized by ASTP, Weizenbaum-Institute for the networked society and G&K. Christoph will guide through the workshop. The workshop will tackle ways of supporting SSHA knowledge transfer in a best possible manner – from research to commercial and non-commercial markets, including social innovation. Therefore, selected talks on SSHA start-ups will provide inspiration. Based on these talks, the Humanities Impact Hub-Café taps into an interactive format that allows instant communication, learning, and orientation on practice-related start-up issues. This way, the workshop seeks to enable attendees for SSHA transfer and start-ups. The workshop addresses SSHA academics and students as well as knowledge transfer-minded attendees who aim to contribute with their work to society and the economy.

The workshop will take place as part of the Berlin Science Week in cooperation with ASTP and the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society  on November 2nd, 2018 from 13 – 17h at Weizenbaum Institute, Hardenbergstr. 32 (1st Floor), D-10623 Berlin.
