[DWIH Coffee Talk #8: Tech Transfer: Taking your ideas, your research, or your startup overseas]
Knowledge and ideas have become the key resources that the industrialized economies of the 21st century depend on. As governments around the globe are promoting innovation to increase their competitiveness, seeking promising ideas abroad and attracting international startups – or in other words knowledge and technology transfer – have become increasingly important. What kind of hurdles need to be overcome in Germany and Japan to transfer promising ideas and technology between the countries? What kind of support is available in Germany and Japan for startups and entrepreneurs who want to expand into the other country?
In the DWIH Coffee Talk on March 2, 2022, four experts and practitioners from the field of Technology Transfer and Startup Support in Japan and Germany discussed these questions: Keisuke Kamitani (Kozo Keikaku Engineering Inc.), Georg Löer (NRW.Global Business Japan), Miho Tanaka (Shibuya Startup Support) and Dr. Kim Zietlow (Germany Trade & Invest).
